We arrived in Antwerp on a Monday, so a lot of sights were closed, unfortunately, but we made the most of it by walking loads and exploring the port city. Upon arriving, we were blown away by the train station – it's one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. We noticed a lot of younger people in the city, which made sense once we learned that Antwerp is home to several colleges. My favorite part of the day was stumbling upon t'Hofke, a charming restaurant that we found only by wandering down a hidden courtyard. It was closed (again, Monday!) but if ever I find myself back in Antwerp, I'll be sure to return and enjoy a nice meal via their outdoor seating or even downstairs in their candlelit cellar (so romantic!).
