The Antwerp City Card: Discover Antwerp with Ease

Antwerp, a beautiful Belgian city known for its rich history, art, and diamond trading, is a must-visit destination for travelers. To make your experience in this enchanting city hassle-free, consider the Antwerp City Card – a convenient pass that grants you access to public transport, museums, attractions, and more. In this blog post, we’ll explore what’s included in the Antwerp City Card, the options available, and how to order and use your city pass.

What’s included in the Antwerp City Card?

The Antwerp City Card comes packed with benefits to help you make the most of your visit to this wonderful city:

Unlimited Free Public Transport

With the Antwerp City Card, you get unlimited access to Antwerp’s public transport system (called De Lijn), which includes buses, and trams. This enables you to travel almost anywhere with ease in Antwerp.

I personally found it quite easy to walk to most major attractions from the Antwerp Central train station, however, there are a few attractions that are further away and it would be handy to use public transport for those, for sure.
