Theaterbuurt - Antwerp Skip to main content


It is clear where the name of this neighbourhood comes from. The ‘Theaterbuurt’ (theater neighbourhood) owes its name to the various theaters that can be found in the area. This is the place where the beautiful Bourla Theater is located, the City Theater, the Theater het Paleis and many more.

In addition to the possibility to visit performances, there are also a number of restaurants and cafes, to have a snack or drink before or after the performance. Of course you do not have to visit a show for this. For example, visit Barnini for lunch, Lints for one of their delicious pastries or Caffènation for a nice coffee.

For even more culture, the ‘Theaterbuurt’ offers two museums: the Museum Mayer van den Bergh and the Maagdenmuseum.
