I once visited Antwerpen Centraal with a railway guide. He took us behind the scenes, on the 70 meters high skywalk in the big train arrival hall. I (and most other commuters who come here regularly) didn't even know you could walk there high above...More

Crowded noisy not well sign posted no information boards in English hard to find staff that speak English. No clear announcements of departures or arrivals.

Central dome is worth the time. Such a lovely architecture, typically European design. Spend some time to roam the station, it is such a delight. Well connected to other capitals on Europe. Traveled to neighboring cities and Amsterdam

I could really recommend coming to Antwerp Station as a tourist. The large staircase at the entrance is very beautiful, it is one of the most famous landmarks of Antwerp. As a traveller I could really appreciate the navigation within the station.

The train station is a tourist attraction by itself. Beautiful architecture and glass and it was the prettiest train station in Belgium and that is saying a lot!

Very cold inside but it is amazing to spend few minutes visiting it. The roof and the sides is in good shape to see the history behind it.

I think Central Train Station in Antwerp is the most beautiful train station that I have ever been to. It was named the "Most Beautiful Train Station in the World" a few years back and I can see why. It looks more like a Cathedral!!!...More
