Create an itinerary including Grote Markt
Get a sense for the beating heart of the old city at Grote Markt, which translates as "Great Market Square." Take a look at the Gothic city hall and Baroque guildhalls, ornate narrow buildings with gilded decoration accenting the facade. These housed powerful artisan guilds who looked after each other and protected the techniques of their craft for future generations. Have your photo taken next to Brabo Fountain, designed by Jef Lambeaux and depicting the local legend of the hero Brabo conquering the giant Antigoon. Stop by the tourist office for information on events in the square, such as the Christmas Market and skating rink. Take a look at our Antwerp road trip website to schedule your visit to Grote Markt and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
