Antwerp/Diamond District
Background Pattern
Diamond District .
The Diamond District - or Diamantkwartier- is a living memento 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. For curious travellers, however, 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.

De Vagant

The atmosphere of De Vagant takes you back to medieval times. The first jenever bar in Belgium, it has a range of more than 200 varieties that warm up the soul. Although also referred to as Dutch gin, jenever finds its origins in the historical region now known as Flanders. Its first historical record traces back to the notes of an Antwerp-based physician from 1269.

Elana

Elana loves foreign films, listening to songs in languages she does not understand, and telling jokes in Afrikaans with the occasional South African traveller. She can be quiet but don’t get her started about food, she could talk about the topic for hours – asking her to recommend a place for dinner is a great idea, if you have time to spare. After work, you can find Elana enjoying a cold craft beer at her favourite brewery in the neighbourhood. She speaks English, Afrikaans, Dutch, and she is learning Polish.
