## LOOKING FOR A SWAP IN COPENHAGEN DURING JULY 2020 ## We live in this new build house for 4 years now. It is fully equipped, but still needs some work....
Where is it?
The neighbourhood is a rather quiet part of Antwerp, Wilrijk with very good connections to the city center. You can take a bus across the house, a car or even go by bicycle. It takes only 10 minutes by car or bus.
Antwerp is an international city and famous for its old medieval city center with the diamond shops, the museums, chinatown, the river de Schelde (with a beach in summer) and the harbour with all kind of cruises. A lot of restaurants, shops (especially at the Meir and the Keyserlei), theatres and an excellent nightlife are available. There are also very nice parks and a very special big Zoo.
Trendy quarters are "Het Zuid", "Het Eilandje" and the Quartier Latin. Whole year around there is a lot to do, in summer a lot of mostly free festivals, in winter the christmas-market and at new year a very big fireworks show at the Schelde. The surrounding villages have their own festivals in summer. These festivals are visited by the whole population of Belgians, despite their age.
You can also bike very well through and around Antwerp on special made bike-paths. The villages around Antwerp are beautiful. From our house you can go in a short while (by bike or car) through the country.
From Antwerp you can travel very easy to Brussels, Gent, Brugge -the Belgian, French or Dutch coast-, Holland, England,Germany or Luxembourg. You can reach all this destinations within 1 to 3 hours. Paris and Amsterdam in approximately 2 hours.
Very nearby our house you can find a nice green square where you can let your children play safely.
Belgium is a wonderful country, the people are friendly and polite. They always try to help you. Most of them speak at least french or english.
The Belgians like a burgundian way of life, they love good food and wine. The Belgian beer and genevers are worldfamous. They are still made in little breweries you can visit.
Antwerp is a gem with a beautiful centre, a lot of restaurants and pubs. Like a smaller, cozier Paris but not so expensive.
We are sure you will love it too!
