The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) is the beating heart of ‘t Zuid. View the works of Belgian and Southern Netherlands’ painters such as Rubens, Ensor and Fouquet. Unfortunately, the museum is closed for extensive renovations to the end of 2017. Until then, there will be exhibitions in various museum annexes. The Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (MHKA) is within walking distance of the hotel and the MAS is a short distance’s cycle away. We recommend the photo museum FOMU (Fotomuseum Provincie Antwerpen) and the Rubens House and the Plantin-Moretus Museum. The erstwhile home of the 16th-Century printing family Plantin-Moretus is home to the world oldest printing press.
In Antwerp it’s useful to have a map with you with all the tourist attractions on it; every street, every street corner, has a story to tell. The city is dynamic, and remains so. So you don’t miss anything, it might be useful to ask the locals for recommendations. Behind the KMSKA, for example, you will find the Shomré Hadass Synogogue, a hidden treasure in ‘t Zuid. This old Jewish place of worship is sometimes called the Dutch Synagogue as it was built by Jewish immigrants from the northern part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. A must for lovers of modern architecture is the Antwerp Palace of Justice, also called “Vlinderpaleis” (butterfly palace) or “Frietzakskes” (after the conical paper bags fries are sold in).
There is paid parking at the hotel. Hampshire Hotel – O Sud Antwerpen can do the parking for you. For a small consideration (€ 25), the hotel provides valet parking, providing covered parking for your car. You can get around perfectly without your car: there are city bikes, Vespas and a SMART cabrio for hire. Are you travelling by public transport? Tram 8, which runs from the Meir in the city centre to the Antwerp city limits to the east, stops right in front of the hotel.Plan route More info
