What a beautiful place this is. At Christmas and in the Summer the lights are great. Very tastefully done. Often something going on there

Very busy square in the middle of the city. But looks interesting with many cafes and restaurants around. There are number of boutique shop too.

It's just the center place were busses and trams stop. You have a lot of café's and the hilton hotel. Close to everything, but there are nicer places to visit for a drink!

Was in Antwerp for one night on business. But disappointed with Antwerp in general looking very tired and there seemed to be a general edginess to some of the people hanging around the city .

The place is more vivid, due to the traffic and trams and has got better café's and restaurants than the Grote Markt square around the corner.

For the most part, Groenplaats does not offer a great deal of things to see. Yes, you do have good views of Our Lady's Cathedral from there. However, that is pretty much it. Built on an underground carpark, the square is largely devoid of any major attraction or entertainment. Furthermore, it is also a bit dirty and tends to attract... More

The Groenplaats is a lovely square on the way to the Cathedral and Grote Markt. It has lots of Restaurants and the Hilton Hotel. The is also a handy McDonald's if travelling with young family!

This square is full of eating places and also perfect just to chill out on a bench and eat an ice cream or a waffle.

This is one of the many squares in Antwerp, but certainly a very lively one. You will find many a restaurant and bar to sit and relax, watch the world go by. Lovely when the sun is shining and you can "people watch".
