Nice long tunnel under the river Schelde. You can use the wooden escalator or the lift to go down/up. The tunnel takes you to Linkeroever where you can go for a walk and have amazing views of the city across the river. When in Antwerp,...More

Long stretch of pedestrian / cyclist tunnel. That runs under ground, below the Scheldt River. It stretched about 600m.nice walk across. There after.,took a free ferry back that operate both ways. It took all of 2 mins for the ferry ride. Interesting.

A day in Antwerp on bikes discover one side or both side of the river is a must! The old wooden escalators on both ends with bikes are a breeze. Renting the city bikes is the best as every 30 minutes you can return them,...More

This tunnel is easily accessible on both side if the bank. If yiy come from the town hall, just head towards the river and make a left turn. Look for a boring looking and old industrial looking building with cyclists emerging (see attached pix). A...More

What a great way to get across the river. The wooden escalators are like something out of a Flash Gordon Movie, Real Art Deco. They are in excellent condition. The tunnel itself is so bright and clean. Keep a watch out for bicycles though. (10...More

Just keep walking. It is full of bicycle riders and can be quite hair raising of a walk as they speed by you. A unique experience.
