Traffic jams, frustrating searches for a parking spot or even more roadworks… Getting around in Antwerp is not always easy. The best way to avoid all those hurdles? Jump onto your bike and cruise around the city! For those who don’t own a bike, rent one at Levanto or Swapfiets or share one thanks to the sharing systems of Velo Antwerp, Cloudbike or Blue-bike.
Pay attention: GATE15 is a mobile bike repair point. Drop off your bike here and get it fixed.
Pretty much everything in Antwerp can be reached by public transport. Tram and metro stops are scattered all over the city and busses drive into, out of and around the city. Most regional busses depart from the Rooseveltplaats, the Astridplein or the Groenplaats. Check all the up-to-date information online. For the train go to the website of the NMBS and for the rest (bus and tram) to DeLijn.
Or try something different
Bike, car, public transport… all logical options to get around in the city. However, in the last few years, many alternative systems have been introduced in Antwerp. As from the autumn of 2019 the electric Bird scooters are zooming through the streets. Sharing systems have also been introduced for scooters (Scooty) and cars (Poppy). Up for a real fun alternative? Then take the waterbus for a change. It sails between the Steenplein in Antwerp and Hemiksem, with a stopover in Kruibeke. In short, plenty of ways to explore the ‘Koekestad’.
