This is a very interesting place for beer lovers. It’s on the food and drink street of De Keyserlei directly west of Antwerp Central station just north of the Diamant area.
What’s the one thing you need to do if you go to Belgium? Yep – Real Belgian Waffles!
In my walks around Brussels I’d walked past many shops / cafes offering waffles but hadn’t dropped into one yet. One afternoon I decided I’d better go out and give them a try or I’d never be allowed back into the country.
On Sunday morning, my first full day in Belgium, I’d wandered into the centre of Brussels which was about a 10 minute walk from my hotel.
Antwerp is about 70 minutes north of Brussels by intercity train and was the next stop on my European tour and I’d chosen to stay at the Crowne Plaza.
After the train trip from Lyon to Brussels Central station I was in a taxi for a short ride to my next hotel The Hilton Brussels City in Rogier.
If I’d done my homework a bit better I’d have gotten a train to either the Rogier Metro station or to Brussels Nord station which are both a ~5 minute walk from the hotel… but alas I’m not known for planning so spent ~€15 on the taxi.
