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.

  • A great train station, very nice, clean and in a beautiful building. A great connection place through Europe and Brussels.

  • This is a fantastic looking train station with an architecture to match a typical European palace. It's worth visiting even if you're not taking the train.

  • Very beautiful main station. Obviously, it is very crowded so being cautious about pickpocket is recommended. I like the balance between old architecture and new renovations. From the right hand of the main exit is Antwerpen zoo which is convenient for visitors.
  • Beautiful architecture! Best maintained train station in Europe! The multiple floors for trains were cool to see as it was an open train station.
