This grand central station is very impressive both inside and out. It's in a great location for hotels, restaurants, bars and China Town. From here it was around a 15-20 min walk to the old part of town.

This is one of the most beautiful station I saw. There is a heritage to it and elegance of Antwerp. You can't miss the beautiful dome and one of the monument in itself. U should not miss it if you are in Belgium.
