The entire city centre of Antwerp and Linkeroever are a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) to ensure that air in the city becomes even cleaner. Always check your vehicle with the check tool before entering the LEZ.   Check my vehicle.

Antwerp Central Station is considered to be one of the most beautiful stations worldwide with both national and international connections. Thanks to its central location in Europe, connection times to major cities are short and comfortable. Antwerp has high speed rail connections with Paris, Amsterdam, London and Cologne.

When possible, why not consider travelling by train instead of flying.  Find my train.
