"Stadsschouwburg, the city theater" Royal Flemish Opera - Koninklijke Vlaamse Opera Tip by Pavlik_NL

  The beautiful city theatre (stadsschouwburg)

Though Antwerpen has it's royal Flanders Opera-house, this town couldn't do without it's own "schouwburg" or in English: a theatre. The great building is often seen by cardrivers, but not many times by the visitors of the centre. Reason is that it is on the outer ring (the Leien) and therefor out of the walking direction of the masses. Anyway, the building is a wonderful neo-classicistic architecture and holds several halls in which performances are held, varieting from ballet and plays to general performances and conferences (Dutch term for entertainment brought by speech).
