The apartment is all yours, except for the 2nd bedroom, which I use as storage for personal stuff.
Interaction with Guests
I am always on standby should you require any assistance
Oud-Berchem is a quiet, charming neighbourhood to the South of the city centre. This is where the wealthy bourgeoisie lived as from the 1850s. There are lots of stately mansions from different periods, a treat for the architectural eye. It is a quiet neighbourhood, there is plenty of parking space. De Singel (Academy for Music, Dance, Theatre), Middelheim Park and Antwerp Expo are just a 10 minute walk away. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars around, as well as a fantastic bakery (try the croissants!), a newspaper agent and a mid-sized supermarket. At 400 metres there is a tram stop, where you can take 4 lines towards the city centre (15 minutes).
Getting into town from the apartment: at 400 metres there is a tram stop, where you can take 4 lines towards the city centre (15 minutes). On foot it is about 35 minutes.
Getting to the apartment: if you are arriving at Brussels Airport, take the Airport Xpress bus to Antwerp (25 minutes, € 10) and get off at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (ask the driver to stop there). From there it is a mere 7 minute walk. Alternatively, you could take a train to Antwerpen Centraal and take tram 15 (stop = De Merode), or tram 2 or 6 (stop = Provinciehuis) and walk from there (5 minutes). If you are arriving by car, take exit 4 on the Antwerp Ring, called "Berchem", if you are coming from the North (Breda) or East (Genk, Hasselt, Lummen, Eindhoven), and exit 5 "Berchem" if you are coming from the West (Ghent, Bruges). If you are coming from Brussels via the E19, just go straight ahead in the direction of "Antwerpen-centrum". There is plenty of parking space in the street (only € 4 per day).
Other Things to Note
The apartment is ideally located for those wanting to visit other cities in Belgium by car as there is plenty of parking (only € 4 per day) and it only takes 2 minutes to get to the motorway.
Upon request I can provide a baby bed (60 x 120 cm) with mattress and sheets for 5 EUR per day.
No smoking allowed. No candles in the bedroom.
Dieter's apartment was just what we needed for a weekend spent visiting friends in Antwerp! It was spacious, clean and conveniently located for getting out and about. For me and my boyfriend, it was the little touches that made the most difference - handy knowledge about the area and the cupboards stocked with essentials should you need them (from milk in the fridge to a whole array of spices). We would definitely choose to stay again next time we visit!
Een fijne plek om te vertoeven. Het appartement is ruim en licht, van alle gemakken voorzien en schoon. De ontvangst was hartelijk. We kregen leuke tips om Antwerpen te leren kennen. Hebben daar ook gebruik van gemaakt. We denken met plezier terug aan deze stad.

Dieter was bijzonder behulpzaam met alle informatie. Hierdoor voelden wij ons thuis in zijn apartement. Het apartement is excellent, alles werkt goed, is bijzonder schoon, met een handige indeling. Ligging is prima, op 15 minuten van centrum in rustige buurt. Parkeren is 4 euro voor een dag en er is voldoende plek. Echt een aanrader.
Dieter was really friendly and useful and made sure everything was ready before we got there. And it was! The flat was beautiful and clean, the kitchen was stocked, guide books were aplenty, and above all, the flat is in a convenient location to the Centrum. I will definitely recommend staying there! It was really wonderful. Thank you, Dieter.
Alles ordentlich und wie beschrieben vorgefunden... sehr freundliche Kommunikation mit dem Gastgeber...
Het appartement heeft alle beloften waargemaakt. Prima voor elkaar, heel netjes en ruim.
We had a very good time in Antwerpen and the apartment from Dieter was very comfortable!
Thank you Dieter for your great hints and your help!
We're looking forward to our next stay in your great location!
