"Behind me people were dining..." Antwerp Favorite Tip by Pegasus74

Antwerp General: 202 reviews and 221 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: <font face=verdana>Behind me people were dining alfresco, some desserting while others tucking in Flemish delights but everyone has got their favorite delicious Belgian beer by their plates. And behind us stands the impressive <font color='008FFF'>Cathedral of Our Lady</font>, Belgium's tallest church, which chimed 'joyful joyful we adore thee' almost every quarter of the hour. Its 120m high spire is spectacular especially at night when it is illuminated. This holy structure also houses three magnificent triptychs by Rubens, one of which is his 'Descent from the Cross'.</font>
