This place is beautiful! Have seen it many times, but still every time I go it's impressive! Take some extra time to walk around and up and down some stairs.

I had a transfer here on my way to Brugge, and was surprised by the grandeur of this very busy train station. Staff were helpful with platform directions, it was very clean and a credit to Antwerp

Well signed and plenty of lifts and escalators. There are amenities but these are limited. There is a decent cafe attached to the station but there are plenty within a few minutes walking distance. It is a half hours walk to the old town.
