The Other Antwerp – The Skyline

We ended our weekend in Antwerp in beauty… There we were, the four of us: Leen, Veerle, Lars and I. Standing at the left river bank, looking at the skyline. The end of the afternoon was there; the sun was starting to set. Simply magical…

Lars and I want to thank Leen and Veerle for showing us the hidden beauty of Antwerp. It was an intense, interesting, funny and breathtaking experience. And we hope that you, dear readers, loved it too!

      So you are from Britain? How is Christmas there? We wish you a god jul too here from dark Belgium. We slowly start to look forward to the first signs of spring, but I think, we will have to be patient some months still

    We enjoyed the 2 days very much as well :-)! Although we live in the city, and knew that these places are very worth the while (“vaut le d√©tour” as well!), we hadn’t visited them all yet – your visit was the opportunity to carry out our own plans :-)! We too were amazed by the views at the Noordkasteel, and we are definitely planning to pay a visit to Fort Liefkenshoek again. This time, we enjoyed the exhibitions and activities on the inside, next time, we will be walking along the fortified walls.
    By the way: for those who are interested in etymology: “Liefkenshoek” means “lover’s corner”. The place derived its name from the fact that it’s a lovely and quiet “corner” at the borders of the river Scheldt, and that for centuries by now, lovers enjoy the peacefulness and quietness of the “corner” to eh… love eachother. The place already had that name before the fort was built, and although it became a more “military” environment, the name was kept and refers now to the fort as well.
