The most populous city proper in Belgium, Antwerp’s metropolitan area houses around 1,200,000 people, second behind Brussels. Located on the River Scheldt, linked to the North Sea by the Westerschelde estuary, the Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world making the city an invaluable international resource. Home to innumerable cultural and historical landmarks, like the fairytale-esque 16th century Guildhouses, Antwerp is a venerated tourist attraction while remaining a vitally important residential city of Europe.
