The trendy neighborhood that never sleeps

’t Zuid, situated in the South of Antwerp, is one of the city’s most trendy neighborhoods. It’s the place to be if you’re looking for trendy restaurants, cosy bars, literary cafés, art galleries, interior shops, fashion houses and so much more. When strolling and lingering around at ’t Zuid, you pass by many aristrocratic art nouveau houses. There’s also a fair chance that you bump into a local celeb, artist, writer or actor. All year long, many activities are organized in this neighborhood. It’s a very vibrant and lively area…

The beating heart of ’t Zuid is the Royal Museum for Fine Arts (KMSKA). The neighborhood’s itinerary is characterized by large streets in a star-shaped pattern, inspired by what Haussmann accomplished in Paris. This pattern is very obvious at the Marnixplaats, the Lambermontplaats, the Leopold de Waelplaats, the Gillisplaats and the Bolivarplaats. Locals often call ’t Zuid “Petit Paris”.
