This is a very historic tunnel that is worth the walk under the river. The wooden escalator is in amazing condition. On the other side you get a good view of Antwerp.

This art deco walking tunnel under de Schelde river is worth a visit. I always enjoyed the architecture of this place on my visits to the left bank.

This underground tunnel allows you to walk between Antwerp and The Netherlands. It's reached by a pair of beautiful antique escalators. There is an exhibit explaining its construction history, which was interesting. It was beautifully lit up for Pride weekend when we visited. You can...More
