Welcome to the port of Antwerp. Welcome to the future!
We start in the Port Pavilion at the MAS, with the impressive aerial view of the city and the historic port.
There we discover how small, high-tide boats moored in the centre of the old town in the 16th century. Did you know that the centre of Antwerp still has 8 km of vests, fleeces and moulting? Now you can visit it underground with a moulting guide.
The first docks were dug by order of Napoleon Bonaparte on the island, where the story of the docks begins.
Experience the port as even a true Sinjoor has never seen it before! Full of passion and dedication, our port guide tells us in a playful way about the port of past and present, the operation of the port, the port companies and the disappeared polder villages.
Of course the “the port of the future” will also be discussed. Discover all the innovations, such as the Echodrone, the wind turbines and iNoses. Where people and technology, logistics and sustainability, innovation and nature go hand in hand.
Did you know that:
- The port area has an area of 12,068 hectares or 20,000 football pitches, making it the largest port in the world?
- There are more than 80 wind turbines in the port?
- A third of the Belgian rail network is in the port? More than 1000 km!
- The port stocks more coffee beans than anywhere else in the world, the black gold!
From the harbour pavilion we leave by minibus or travel bus (depending on the size of the group) to the harbor. Our port guide knows the port inside out and enriches your tour through this fascinating world of containers and locks.
Antwerp is Europe’s most sustainable port. One that future generations can also be proud of! We will show you and show you around in this fascinating part of Antwerp.
We end in the village of Lillo for a Lunch or Dinner.
Of course we also make tailor-made port tours for companies, people from Antwerp or tourists.
