An international seaport city with a present every bit as spicy and cosmopolitan as its past, Belgium’s second biggest metropolis has successfully moulded itself into a draw for everyone from foodies to fashion nuts. Its historical backstreets reveal an evocative web of cafés, chocolatiers and diamond stores, while by night the Antwerp club scene now enjoys a reputation of hefty proportions. Salty-aired, free-spirited and rooted in cultural diversity – it has one of Europe’s most important Orthodox Jewish communities, for example – the city remains a vigorous prospect for a break.
