Groenplaats should be another square in city centre of Antwerp where local residents would spend much time to relax or to stroll around at night time. There were many restaurants, cafes and shops around and the place was easily accessible by public transportation.

Whilst having a number of restaurants and bars around it, the area doesn't really reflect some of the more traditional and pretty areas of Antwerp center.

If you are a little bit tired of walking in Antwerp, you can take a break and drink something on a 'terrase' situated at 'Groenplaats'. It is crowded, but pleasant to stop and see all those people walking while you enjoy a drink.

Plebeian Groen plaats is near aristocratic Grote markt. Despite the posh Hilton hotel here is less tourists and more life than on the Grote Markt.

Good tram stop both underground and overground for the historic centre. Big square dominated by the Reubens statue. Good views of the cathedral.

.Nice view of the Cathedral and the Statue of Rubens. Resting and sitting in the Sun. Near the Shopping center. Your review must be at least 100 characters long. Adding details really helps travelers

Lots of places to eat here. During Christmas, there's a Christmas Market that stretches to the river. It's also a bus hub, so you can get to anywhere from here and vice versa.
