If you don't have a precise plan of what you want to see, this is the place to be. You visit the most beautiful sights and are entertained with nice puzzles. There is also little information about the sights. We had a lot of fun.

It's a good idea to discover Antwerp. We only had one afternoon and we were dallying, so we didn't quite get through. But that wasn't too bad. Thumbs up :0)

It was a very fun and interesting way to learn about the city’s history! We especially love solving the puzzles and challenges. A good way to go around the city :)
