Antwerp, somewhat off the beaten track

The people who know Antwerp know it mostly for the cathedral, the cityhall, the trainstation and the area in between but I thought it would be nice to show some of my pictures of the lesser known area's, both in the old city and the belle époque neighbourhoods.

Hahah, actually, no... I've never been to Belgium... Unfortunately...! I know about Zurenborg 'cause I study Architecture and a time ago I was searching about Art Nouveau style and I found some pictures of it (and I got really, really impressed)!

How about the diamond cutting?

Of course I've heard of Antwerp before.
Lovely city!

Nice joke. I always connect Austria with the Anschluss and Jörge Haiders Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs ...

Serious now, the Vlaams Blok is called Vlaams Belang now since their condemnation for racism, and it's just one of the many political parties in Antwerp. Most of the inhabitants are very tolerant. The major of this multicultural harbour city is a popular socialist Patrick Jansen.

@Evan G. Verry nice shots!
Do you have any pics of the splendid renovated Central Station and the supurb Town Hall?

two more sets

The streets around the place where I used to work and the view from that building




















From left till right:
The policetower, the cathedral, the Sint Joris church, the sint Paulus church in the distance and the Boerentoren, one of the contenders of being the oldest skyscraper in Europe.






















The district of Berchem, outside the 19th century citywall

Very nice city and very pictures that I´ve already seen before but still I think more people should see it.
I don´t know what the international perception of Antwerp is because in Belgium and Holland it´s getting more and more poplular.

Around the central station:






The entrance to the diamond district.




More than half of the worlds diamonds are traded in this single street.
