Enjoy the silence in Antwerp

, , ,

Always alive, rarely sleeping: Antwerp is a very busy city. Fortunately, there are also numerous silent spots where you can find rest. In these parks, gardens and squares, you can listen to the birds singing their beautiful song, smell the flowers, have a chat and relax to the max. Research has shown that silent, quiet places have a positive effect on life in the city and the well-being of its inhabitants. According to a 2013 project of the city of Antwerp and Ghent University, Antwerp has 34 “silent city spots”.
