About your host

I was born in Antwerp and studied Art History and Decorative Arts in Belgium and London. After a few internships at cultural institutions and on the art market, I started as an independent art consultant in 2008. I am perfectly trilingual in French, Dutch and English. I have got Antwerp in my blood, and I look forward to explore this exciting city with you!

What we’ll do

Old Docks, Cadix and Montevideo… the once so faded docklands are rejuvenating. Today we call them ‘het Eilandje’ – because the neighbourhood was formerly enclosed by water when the locks of the Bonapartedok and the Verbindingsdok were open. A fascinating walk along Antwerp’s first docks.

What I’ll provide

Coffee, Juice, Soft drinks, Tea and Water

Where you'll be

Along a beautiful waterfront you can admire the splendid museum MAS | Museum Aan de Stroom. Elsewhere in the neighbourhood you will encounter historic warehouses which were refurbished and now have a new role, such as the Felix archive, and the Red Star Line buildings from where boats were departing to America up until last century. We will also explore an exciting open-air museum of boats and port machines.
