Antwerp

Street Performers

On a recent trip to Antwerp, Belgium I came across some street performers of the human statue variety.  It was fun seeing children and adults alike jumping after the initial ‘Are they, Aren’t they’ real.  The town wasn’t that busy on that particular day but there was a great atmosphere nonetheless.

Grote Markt

The Grote Markt is a town square situated in the old city quarter of Antwerp, which has an enormous City Hall and some Guildhall buildings dating back to the 16th century, exhibiting some absolutely fantastic architecture.

There are also some great cafes, restaurants and bars in the town – hence the beer shot and what a fantastic beer that was too!

Christmas

Apparently I visited at the wrong time of year because in December the Square is taken over by Christmas markets and even a festive ice rink.

It’s a great place to spend time and if you are anything like me and enjoy a flavoursome beer whilst watching the world go by and a spot of architecture photography, then Antwerp is well worth a visit.
