Meir area, Antwerp: 18 reviews and 18 photos
Favorite thing: Walking along the Meir, a major shopping street in Antwerp you just have to look around and up once in a while. The shopwindows are nice to see but don't miss the buildings and statues along the way.
In this picture you see the statue of Antony van Dyck, who lived from 1599-1641. He was a famous painter from Antwerp. More about him, his life and work can be found at this website: http://www.vandyck.co.uk
Behind the statue is a building with a golden figure of electra on top. It used to be a building of the electricity company.
Address: Meir, Wapper, Teniersplaats
Directions: from Central station, over the De Keyzerlei, cross the Leien and you are there!
