Brussels Photo: Wednesday, 16 August 2006
You have probably realized the weather talk is one of Belgium's favorite past time. Escaping the weather in Brussels we aimed to get wet in Antwerp. So over the next few days I will show you this and the other highlight of Antwerp.
Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium, home to very interesting architecture - 16th and 17th century, home to the arts - Peter Paul Rubens lived here in the early 17th century, home to fashion and design – Dries Van Noten anyone?, home to diamonds – Antwerp is the diamond center of the world covering more than 50% of the world diamond production. But I’ll let you discover Antwerp bit by bit for yourselves.
Starting with its trademark: the De Koninck beer. No discovery of Antwerp can start without having a beer first! More on Belgian Beers can be found here.
