A quick visit to Steenplein can be complete by checking out the castle that is a nice viewpoint of the river as well. There's a winter market & fair that one can visit in the winter.

The castle is very nice and just next to the river. Not many tourist there and it was a little quiet when I visit. but after all, it is a nice place to visit as it is not far from museum and town hall.

Another place in Antwerp which is well worth a visit. There is also a stop for the sightseeing bus nearby - jump on and off where you like.
