Preparing for Antwerpen: Tips & Hints

1. All tourists have an opportunity to get a free city map without any complications. In order to get it simply go to any kiosk located near the train station or Groenplaats Square.
2. Spring or summer are the best time to make a vacation in Antwerp. If you visit this place on other time of the year, frequent rains may violate your recreation program.
3. Smoking is prohibited in public places, so those tourists, who suffer from this addiction, have to search for specially designated smoking rooms. You also should not ask for an ashtray in restaurants – smoking is not allowed in all restaurants and bars of the city.

4. Antwerp suburbs and industrial neighborhoods are surely the most dangerous places for travelers. We recommend walking here only in daylight and with a large company.

5. Travelers should always carry an identity card or a hotel card with them. It will help to resolve incidents easier if any occur.
6. Tips are already included into the total amount of a bill in most restaurants and cafes. However, if you wish, you can leave another 10% of the total order value.

7. If you want to save on travel, it is best to rent a bike. This city is very friendly to cyclists. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of the city in its full while making this kind of ride.
8. When you are ready to go, it's best to take your hotel card, or a copy of your identity document. This rule applies not only to visitors, but also to locals. Every citizen must always carry an identifying document with him/her.
9. You should not compare the traditions of the locals with the tradition of French. Residents of this city are quite intolerable to French traditions.
10. Those, who want to visit the surrounding towns, should use the services of suburban trains. They will bring travellers to Bruges, Ghent and Brussels in less than an hour, and travellers will be able to enjoy comfort at minimal cost.
