Discover the history of Antwerp

Many interesting places of interest and bustling areas in the historic city centre of Antwerp, are around the corner or opposite Hampshire Hotel O - Kathedral. These include Grote Markt, the 16th Century Antwerp town hall and Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal. And there are also many beautiful museums, and great things to do with the children. A few tips:

Museums
ModeMuseum, or MoMu, is located (how fitting) in the heart of Antwerp’s shopping district. This dynamic museum has a collection of more than 25,000 items of clothing, shoes and accessories. Changing and themed exhibitions are composed here regularly. What story does a photograph tell with its images? You’ll learn about this in FotoMuseum Provincie Antwerpen, or FoMu. MAS | Museum aan de Stroom is located in an impressive building in the old port of Antwerp. With permanent and changing exhibitions, this museum tells the story of the city, the river, the port and the world. Famous baroque painter Rubens purchased a building in 1610 which he converted entirely into a home. This building is now a museum, Rubenshuis, that tells the story of his life and work.

Children
One of Europe’s oldest zoos is located in the heart of the city: Antwerpen Zoo. A beautiful, historic place where around five thousand animals live and where there’s lots to see and experience. If the weather turns, you can let the children blow off steam in the indoor playground Pirateneiland. This indoor playground has a pirate ship, climbing and clambering places, slides and games. Aquatopia is also indoors, and is a top attraction with seven wonder water worlds: rain forest, swamp, mangrove, coral reefs, ocean, lab and diving boat. Ecohuis is to the east of Antwerp. In this interactive house you can learn with the whole family how to live in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. You can really take advantage of this.

Special places
Het Steen is a beautiful castle built around 1200. The monument is on the Schelde and is the oldest building in Antwerp. Begijnhof is certainly worth a visit, an oasis of peace in the city with historic small houses, the Sint-Catharinakerkje and a beautiful enclosed garden. The streets around Antwerp central station together form the diamond district, the heart of Antwerp’s diamond industry. You can find precious stones, gold and silver here.

“Very romantic”

I had a very pleasant stay at Hotel O Kathedral. It is perfect for couples. The room was very romantic and a bit sexy. (mirror walls and open bathroom). The first best thing I liked was the location. It was excellent. Everything was nearby. There are alot of good cafés and restaurants nearby the hotel. There are also alot of shopping area's. So the location was excellent. The second best thing I liked was the room. The room was very nice. I had the Cathedral Room. I had a view of the Cathedral. The bed was excellent with nice fluffy pillows (2 per person) and seperate blankets. Be aware that the bathroom was an open space. So you could see your travel partner shower. The bathroom included a very nice bath/rainshowe/normal shower and products of Rituals. Be aware of some noices at night. (The room is facing a square with cafés). The cathedral was ringing the bells quit early. So you will be awake at 9.00 AM.

“Mooi hotel”

Mooi hotel op uitstekende locatie. Vriendelijke personeel, enkel spijtig dat er geen eitjes waren bij het ontbijt (staat nochtans bij de beschrijving van het ontbijt). Kamers zijn donker, maar wel gezellig.

“Leuk hotel, mooie ligging”

Hotel is aardig qua inrichting, jammer dat er geen airco / luchtbehandeling is op de kamers. Kamers zijn erg donker door de inrichting. Ligging is top! Bij het de deur uit gaan sta je meteen in het bruisende centrum. Kamers aan de voorzijde zijn gehorig,maar dit kan je verwachten als je in een bruisend centrum bent.

“Leuk hotel op top locatie”

Overall een leuk, trendy hotel op een top locatie! Het interieur is zwart, wat past bij de stijl van het hotel en een speciale sfeer geeft. De zwarte wanden zijn wel heel gevoelig voor gebruikerssporen waardoor het minder strak oogt en de het trendy gevoel afzwakt.

“perfecte locatie, mindere kamers”

+ De bedden liggen heel lekker, hele goede service bij het boeken en perfecte locatie midden in het centrum, mooi vormgegeven, van buiten en van binnen - de kamers zijn heel klein, geen ruimte voor nachtkastje of eigen verlichting, grootste nadeel is dat de toilet midden in de kamer staat zonder afscheiding, geldt ook voor de douche, alleen een glazen wand midden in het zicht in en hoek van de kamer, het hotel is erg gehorig en de lakens vertoonden een paar slijtplekken.

“Zwartkijken”

Het Hotel O Kathedral Antwerp is best aardig, maar omdat alles zwart is (muren, plafond, vloer, deuren etc) zie je geen hand voor ogen. Zeker niet op de gang, waar geen daglicht komt. Zwartkijkers!!!! Maak de muren wit, zeker op de gang. Of verdrievoudig de verlichting, zodat je een boek kunt lezen op de kamer zonder dat je pal voor het raam moet gaan zitten. Design is leuk, maar het moet wel functioneel blijven. Bovendien is het niet goed schoon te houden als alles zwart is en de verlichting onvoldoende.
