Many interesting places of interest and trendy cafés, restaurants and shops are just a short walk from Hampshire Hotel - O Sud Antwerpen. There’s loads to do on Leopold de Waelplaats. So you don’t even need to leave the district. But here are a few great tips both in as well as outside Het Zuid:
The beating heart of Het Zuid is Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen, KMSKA. The city’s most famous museum has its own unique collection, with works from Belgian and Southern Dutch artists such as Rubens, Ensor and Fouquet. The museum is closed until 2017 due to large-scale renovation. Until this time, the expositions are given in various annexes. Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen, MHKA, is also well worth the visit. Another interesting, but less known museum is FotoMuseum Provincie Antwerpen, FoMu, with its own collection about the historic development of photography, changing photographic exhibitions and exhibitions from much-discussed photographers.
