Must see · Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
More than a train station, Antwerpen-Centraal is an eclectic architectural marvel. Designed by three separate architects and built between 1895 and 1905, the station has received several distinctions as one of the most beautiful railway stations in the world. Enter the historic domed building and marvel at the station's marble and stone interior. Note the three levels of platforms that provide connections throughout the country and the rest of Europe. The station mixes old with new, as renovations have been needed over the years. Notice how the modern architecture blends beautifully with the historic style. Make Antwerpen-Centraal a centerpiece of your Antwerp vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Antwerp trip planner.
