This city is really alive, full of restaurants, galleries and interesting shops. New buildings under construction. Zaha Hadid Port House and the Mas were the spots I prefer. The Museum of Fine Arts is under works and many other parts of the city are in evolution

Tempe

Belgian city with a lot of history. Nice walkable city, with a few medium sized museums, lots of places to eat, and lots of old architecture. The old town is set along the river.

Antwerp is full of culture and history, the Center employs a large number of museums. Including the Rubens House, the fashion museum and the newly opened Museum aan de stroom. Visit also the beautiful handschoenmarkt,De Grote Markt, the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Kerk and go looking for the Vlaaikensgang that takes you back in time. Go shopping in the Meier and the beautiful stadsfeestzaal. Taste the delicious Belgian beers and dont forget the chocolate.

There are many things to see and do in Antwerp - but you can see a whole lot more if you get on a bike. I have a couple of postings on Antwerp and the bike scene there on this blog http://bike-52.com/bikes-antwerp-even-weekend-market/

One of the great Flemish trading centers of the norther renaissance, Antwerp is also a major diamond center in Europe. The main square is beautiful and still retains much of the historical charm from its renaissance era.

I was born and raised here, and still live in this town. Great food with influences from all over the world and original Belgian beers, nice atmosphere, there are always a lot of activities, shows, ...happening. The historical center is certainly a match for Brussels. Some very nice museums!
