Antwerp .
You may remember her from History class. During the Middle Ages, Antwerp was one of the most influential centres in Western Europe, thanks to its position on the estuary of the Scheldt. The finest goods exchanged on the continent flowed in and out via this trading port. With such heritage, and being the birthplace of masters of the Flemish Baroque like Rubens and Van Dyck, the city shines with historic charm, gothic churches teeming with masterpieces and monumental landmarks overlooking quaint little streets. A noticeable tradition of creativity and cultural fusion lives on, ingrained within the character of the city. Zaha Hadid’s Port House elegantly symbolises the innovative spirit that makes Antwerp one of the hottest creative hubs in Europe, a rising star in the fashion and design industries, and a source of inspiration for over a million visitors every year. Your YAYS apartment in Antwerp will place you right at the centre of this vibrant city.

Diamond District Antwerp
Diamond District

The Diamond District - or Diamantkwartier- is a living reminder of the history of Antwerp as the unrivalled diamond capital of the world. The trade and cutting of diamonds have made the Flemish city famous since the 15th century, with over 80% of the world's diamonds still transiting through this area every year. Don't let the twinkling dazzle you, though: there is much more to this neighbourhood than shopping for shiny stones! Its vibrant atmosphere, surprising museums, appetizing food joints and bustling nightlife make it a great place to call your interim neighbourhood during your days in town. The Flemish Opera and Antwerp Central Station, both within walking distance, are monumental neighbourhood landmarks with a wealth of stories to discover.
