Antwerp Opening Hours

Justin Bunch | CityscapeTravel I say “Densely Preserved Old Town”, but in reality its hard to categorize specific streets, since it can vary greatly. These are general guides, and especially as one leaves the city center, the level of preservation increases substantially.

Antwerp is a very accessible city, most of the opening hours are convenient and easy to appreciate. It also helps that most of the main sites in the old town are located within easy walking distance of each other. Below is a list of the opening hours for the sites mentioned in this guide.

St. AndrewEveryday 9am-6pm
St. PaulSaturday-Sunday 2-5pm
St. Charles BorromeoMonday-Saturday 10am – 12:30pm & 2-5pm

The main destinations to prioritize are the churches of St. Charles and St. Paul, which have the least accessible opening times. As such, the worst possible day to visit is Monday, as virtually nothing is open. Saturday is the best day, as will will ensure the most optimal opening times for the most destinations.
