It is a mixed cultural neighborhood. A lot of young people moved in, providing a new vibe. New restaurants, cafes, shops pop up all the time.
So they call the neighborhood BOHO
The place is easily accessible by car. Tram and bus stop around the corner . The railway station is 10 minutes walk. That is also the place where the airport bus stops.
Tram 10 stops near the apartment and takes you all the way to the river Scheldt, the old part of the town.
