I would not necessarily recommend eating at one of the restaurants here...very touristy and pricey, and there are much better options just a bit off of the touristy path. But the Markt is beautiful, and a stroll around is a must here....get a waffle and/or...More

Once a week there's a market. Full of stalls with yummy stuff and fresh meat, fruits and veggies, the rest of the time is full of tourists storming the restaurants, cafe and shops. The summary of all the old city architecture there is there.

The Grote Markt is the heart of the city, everything revolves around it. It offers a vast range of restaurants(a bit pricey for what you receive) and spectacular views of the beloved Belfort. The Markt is a 30 second walk from the Burg, another beautiful...More

I personally think Bruges is way more beautiful than Antwerp. There is also more to do for tourists. However, if you want to visit to shop (clothes & shoes), I recommend Antwerp.
