Hi, my name is Anna!
I am your local friend in Antwerp and I would be happy to show you around my beloved city. Being an open-minded, curious and considerate person, I enjoy getting to know new people. That is why guiding is not only my profession but also a passion for more than 5 years.

In my free time I like travelling the world (already 32 countries visited) and writing stories. Therefore, my tours are more like an exiting storytelling which brings history alive.

Last but not least, I have a masters degree in Sociology and Teaching and a few years ago I also accomplished a postgraduate program at The School of Arts, Ghent University. So arts, museums and fashion are my fields of expertise.

Where you'll be

Within 2,5 hours we will explore the historic center of Antwerp through its cozy medieval streets and see at least 15 different places including: Grote Markt Square, The Rubens House, The Palace on the Meir, The Cathedral, Fashion District, St. Borromeo’s church, The St. Anna’s Tunnel, a secret garden of The Plantin-Moretus Museum and many more.

On a cold or rainy day I try to combine outside and indoor stops, so you stay warm.

We had a great experience with Anna. She was very friendly and a good storyteller. I liked that she included us with small questions (and treats😉) etc. Overall the best parts were the (many) „secret“ spots, we would never find on our own. We also lerned many historical things about Antwerp and Belgium. At the end she also gave us a nice „Top 10 To Do“ which we try to do today :) Would definitely recommend 😊

Anna gives a wonderful tour that makes you feel like a citizen of Antwerp after only 2.5 hours! She is an extremely friendly guide, and makes the experiment delightfully personal. It was an experience we can only recommend to others!

Anna was exceptionally charming, energetic and thoughtfully curated her topics, history and stories in a way no one else could. It was highly enjoyable, intermixed with treats and plenty of humor. I highly recommend this tour!

Anna is most enthusiastic and informed about her city. She has obviously worked hard to learn many details and local lore to share with us as we walk around the sites. She enjoys making a personal connection with each person on her tour and remembers the interests in order to relate them to facts and stories as we visit locations. Anna’s tour is not to be missed. (And you’ll enjoy the treats she shares along the way!)
