A Taste of Antwerp, Walking Tour
Saturday, September 8, 2018 - 2:15 p.m.
On this fun historic city tour your guide, Carolien, will not only introduce you to the history and some of the most beautiful sights of Antwerp, but also share some of Antwerp’s fun facts and anecdotes, linked to a couple of unique local delicacies. You have probably heard about the famous ‘Antwerpse Handjes’ (Antwerp hands), a must souvenir and after tasting them, you will never forget how this city got its name.
An expensive and delicious golden liquor in its beautiful bottle is not only served after a lavish meal, it has also saved the life of many a horse over the centuries. While walking around the historic city and learning some interesting history and fun facts, we will taste some local delicacies. Thanks to the port, this city offers an interesting mix in population, culture and flavors.
We will end our tour about 2 hours later in a local pub for a fresh Antwerp Bolleke van 't vat, amber colored draft beer or a glass of wine or water/soft drink.
