Frequently referred to as the New Paris, shopping in Antwerp offers unrivalled opportunities and the city streets create an enchanting environment. No matter what you're looking for, you are sure to find it in one of Antwerps unique districts:
Antwerp's shopping hotspot. The fabulous new mall is just 5 minutes walk from the Astoria and is home to a wonderful mix of top international stores and some unique gems.
Open Monday - Saturday from 10am till 6pm
The Leien boulevards stretch from the Opera on Frankrijklei to Amerikalei in the Zuid district and home to fantastically interesting specialty shops as well as some lovely restaurants and bars - perfect to take a well earned break.
Naturally enough the fashion district is centred around MoMu on Nationalestraat. From prestigious fashion houses to up and coming designers - this neighbourhood oozes cutting edge design. Our insider recommendation is Fish & Chips, not for lunch but for the trend setting styles.
Antwerp's home to the giants of the European High Streets. You'll find all your favourites along the regal streets. If all the shopping has worn you out pop over to the adjacent Jezusstraat for refreshing tea or Wapper Square (opposite Reuben's House) for some great coffee shops.
Only 15 minutes by public transport the Wijnegem Shopping Centre has over 250 shops, restaurants and bars. Open Monday to Saturday 9am - 8pm, Friday open 9am - 9pm.
