In September 2007 we took a 2.5 hour boat tour around Antwerp harbour. This trip is highly recommended as a way of seeing a major aspect of the city, and it is hugely enjoyable.

Antwerp is Europe's second largest port.

Like they are in Zeebrugge, those huge "portainer" cranes are a feature of the skyline in this area of Antwerp.
