Universiteitsbuurt - Antwerp Skip to main content


Did you know that Antwerp is a city of many students? The Universiteitsbuurt (university area) is centrally located, full of nice cafes and a good atmosphere. But of course you should not be fooled by the name of the neighborhood, because the university neighbourhood is certainly not just for students.

For example, visit the Begijnhof with beautiful houses, a church, courtyard, orchard and pond. Be sure to take a stroll past the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, the St. Jacob’s Church, the Letterenhuis and the Snijders & Rockoxhuis, which you can also view from the inside.
