Shopping Hotspot

Antwerp is currently one of the world’s leading fashion cities and shopping hotspots. The city has gained a large following amongst the fashion world thanks to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, which is one of the world’s most prestigious fashion academies and has produced countless top Belgian designers. These include the Antwerp Six, a group of influential avant-garde designers who graduated in 1980-1981.

Fashion District

The Antwerp fashion district is located in Nationalestraat. Here you will find a vast array of products from top international designers, and at a mere fraction of the usual prices. In the fashion district you will also find exclusive products from up-and-coming designers and graduates of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

Diamond District

No trip to Antwerp would be complete without a visit to the world famous Diamond Quarter. Here you will find the world’s largest diamond centre, with almost one square mile of gem cutters, polishers, brokers and merchants. With over 80% of the worlds rough diamonds passing through, you will be sure to find a good deal.

Local Products

Local shopping hotspots include the Meir shopping street, which is easily assessable from most Antwerp City Centre hotels. Here you will be able to find all of the local products that make the region famous, such as chocolates, biscuits, beer and coffee. The street itself is kept free from traffic to make the shopping experience more comfortable. Also, remember to visit Huis A Boon. Famous for being the world’s largest glove shop, it houses over 10,000 different pairs!
