Last year, a few high school friends and I decided to plan a trip. We picked a date, decided on a city and booked a hostel a few weeks later. At first we weren’t 100% sure if we wanted to stay in a hotel, hostel or maybe even an apartment. But after looking online for a bit, we found a cheap hostel that had 4-person room, was quite cheap and close to the city center as well. All we needed. I always check out Booking.com for hotels/hostels/etc. They just have much to offer. In case you’re planning a trip as well, here’s something for you: If you book through my link, it will give you a €25 discount on your stay!
It was my first time visiting Antwerp. I still don’t know why I didn’t go there before, since it’s so close. The first day, we arrived around lunch time. After dropping our stuff at the hostel, we walked towards Maison Tartine. We had a delicious lunch there, and visited the center afterwards. We did some shopping, walking, eating, drinking. A relaxed day in a beautiful city. In the evening we had dinner at Berlin, a resto super close to where we were staying. And we partied during the night.
Did I see much of the city? Not really. But I had a great weekend with my friends! Catching up, acting crazy and just having a good time. I will definitely go back to Antwerp soon. The city has a lot to offer, so I need some extra time to explore all of that. Maybe during the summer. We’ll see!
Have you ever been to Antwerp?
