Hi guys! This tuesday we went to Antwerp because we love to shop and we got the day off so this was the perfect opportunity! One shopping street in Antwerp is the most famous but because we grew up in Antwerp we mostly love the little shopping streets and hidden bars. We had the whole day planned to spend in our beloved city.
We both had some things to do in the morning so we decided to meet in Antwerp central station. We quickly got some food in Exki, a pretty healthy brand that looks out for our planet. Because we both are interested in saving the planet, we love this place. Then we went shopping. The places we visited were Lush, &Other Stories, NYX, Weekday, Sissyboy…
We suggest to go to the “Nationalestraat”. This street is full off shops for every price range. We mostly love the second hand shop Jutka&Riska, Sissyboy, … There are also a lot of little bars and cafés for a beverage.
The streets that surround “de voetgangerstunnel” are also amazing! Here you have all these little souvenirs shops and a lot of tourist visit these streets. This is where we chilled a little in a café. If u need a good bookshop but not that mainstream one, go to “Stad Leest“. This bookshops has all kinds of books like lifestyle, romance, literature but also notebooks and little kids toys etc.
If u guys want more tips on a day in Antwerp, please let us know in the comments below!
Love, S and L
