ANTWERP: THE CITY OF ART / BEST PLACES FOR TRAVELERS

in travel •  last year

Hello guys,

My name is Alex and i live in Antwerp, a beautiful city with a lot of culture, food and pleasure!
I want to show you what you can visit in Antwerp, here are the places:

Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal:

The 2nd largest church in the world!

Het Eilandje:

"HET MAS" is more than a museum. It is an impressive warehouse in the middle of the bustling 'Het Eilandje' district. A promenade with meters-high glass windows leads you 60 meters high. On every floor you will be waiting for a new story about Antwerp, the river, the harbor and the world. The collection of 500,000 museum pieces gives you a refreshing look at the city and its centuries-long contacts with the world in permanent and changing exhibitions. And all the way up, on the 10th floor you can enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view of the city, the harbor and the river.

Justice palace from Antwerp:

In Belgium, each judicial district has its own courthouse, where the court sits. The most famous courthouse in Belgium is the Justice Palace of Brussels. Also striking is the courthouse of Antwerp, which is also called the Butterfly Palace because of the special roof construction

Stadsfeestzaal Antwerp:

In 2004, the city council signed a long-term lease with a project developer for the reconstruction of the banquet hall. The works started that same year. On 25 October 2007, the completely renovated Stadsfeestzaal opened its doors again for the general public, this time as a luxurious shopping center. The glass dome with gold leaf, the staircase hall, the original decorations, sculptures, mosaics, wall reliefs and oak parquet floor were faithfully rebuilt on the original under the control of monumental care. The marble in the large room comes from the same quarry as the originally placed marble of the room.

In addition to the shopping center, 40 apartments were also provided and an underground garage with space for 268 cars.

Nottebohmzaal:

The Heritage Library Hendrik Conscience is the storage library of the city of Antwerp. She is named after the Flemish folk writer: Hendrik Conscience, whose statue adorns the library. A book or journal that is included in the library collection will normally remain available forever.

Boerentoren:

is a monumental building in art-deco style in the center of Antwerp. When the big project was completed in 1931, it was the first skyscraper in Europe. [1] The tower was 87.5 meters high and was the highest skyscraper in Europe, in Antwerp only the Cathedral of Our Lady is higher. The tower building got its (spot) name because of the involvement of the then Belgian Farmers' Union that the project developer, the Algemeene Bankvereeniging, controlled. The Boerentoren received, by Royal Decree, on 17 July 1981 the status of 'protected monument'.

Het Havenhuis:

The new Port House, a combination of an old protected one, in 1922 architect Emiel Van Averbeke built fire station and a new building around and above this building, stands at the Siberiastraat or Kaai 63 at the northern head of the Kattendijkdok. It is the successor of the old Port House on the Entrepotkaai 1. The new building has been the workplace for 500 employees since September 2016.

Hello @gentstudent, Nice to meet you!

I'm a guide dog living in KR community. I can see that you want to contribute to KR community and communicate with other Korean Steemians. I really appreciate it and I'd be more than happy to help.

KR tag is used mainly by Koreans, but we give warm welcome to anyone who wish to use it. I'm here to give you some advice so that your post can be viewed by many more Koreans. I'm a guide dog after all and that's what I do!

Tips:

  • If you're not comfortable to write in Korean, I highly recommend you write your post in English rather than using Google Translate.
    Unfortunately, Google Translate is terrible at translating English into Korean. You may think you wrote in perfect Korean, but what KR Steemians read is gibberish. Sorry, even Koreans can't understand your post written in Google-Translated Korean.
  • So, here's what might happen afterward. Your Google-Translated post might be mistaken as a spam so that whales could downvote your post. Yikes! I hope that wouldn't happen to you.
  • If your post is not relevant to Korea, not even vaguely, but you still use KR tag, Whales could think it as a spam and downvote your post. Double yikes!
  • If your post is somebody else's work(that is, plagiarism), then you'll definitely get downvotes.
  • If you keep abusing tags, you may be considered as a spammer. It may result to put you into the blacklist. Oops!

I sincerely hope that you enjoy Steemit without getting downvotes. Because Steemit is a wonderful place. See? Korean Steemians are kind enough to raise a guide dog(that's me) to help you!

Woff, woff! 🐶

Fantastic photo!

toffe post van stad! I like it :)

Wij zen vant stad! merci e !

Feeling the beauty of Antlip, there are also some buildings with local characteristics, especially the Purple Palace of Justice like a butterfly.
I also like the heritage library Hendrik Conscience. The library is a sea of knowledge. The library Hendrik Conscience also witnessed the development of Antlip, a monument with a time history, and a decorative style of the library Hendrik Conscience. , brown decorative style, very retro, but also very charm!
The other is the Antlip Railway Station. I have never seen such a train station. It is very special and very special, especially the historic red train. It reminds me of the beginning of the film "Harry Bit." It's like.

感觉安特利普好美啊,还有一些具有当地特色的建筑物,特别是那座像蝴蝶的紫色正义宫殿。
我也比较喜欢遗产图书馆Hendrik Conscience,图书馆是知识的海洋,图书馆Hendrik Conscience也见证了安特利普的发展历程,是一座具有时代历程的纪念碑,还有就是图书馆Hendrik Conscience的装饰风格,棕色的装饰风格,很复古,也很有韵味!
另外就是安特利普火车站,我从没见过这样的火车站,很特别,很有特色,特别是那有着历史味道的红色火车,这让我想起了电影《哈利比特》的开始,很像。
