Welcome to Antwerp! I arrive by train to Antwerpen-Centraal train station to one of the most beautiful train stations in the world! In 2009, the American magazine Newsweek even chose the Antwerp Central Station as the fourth most beautiful train station in the world. The station was first used in 1905. The structure is made up of a steel platform covering and a stone station building in an eclectic style. Recently, the station was completely renovated and in 2007 a tunnel underneath the station and a part of Antwerp was opened, reverting the station’s status as a terminus where are all trains have to turn back.
One the first day, I visit the zoo, one of the oldest zoos in Europe and then visit Chocolate Nation (right across from the zoo), the largest museum of Belgian chocolate in the world, Belgian chocolate has been the food of champions, a lure for lovers, the indulgence of the rich and later, the favorite of the masses. It’s not just about buying chocolate. It’s about a whole series of different, diverse experiences.
