Built around the second largest harbour in Europe, and a thriving centre for trade and finance since the 16th century, Antwerp is a city with many great historical sites, loads of history, and a long list of excellent attractions for visitors. Located within comfortable driving distance of France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany, Antwerp is the perfect city to base yourself while exploring Europe with your rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Antwerp is both easy and economical.
A great way to begin your visit to Antwerp is by heading to one of the tallest buildings in the city for a bird's eye view. Drive your rental car into the city centre, and visit Boerentoren, also known as KBC Tower. Built in the 1930s and standing at almost 100m tall, this is the oldest skyscraper in Europe, and you will get a fantastic view of the city from the lookout on the 25th floor.
The tallest structure in the city is the Cathedral of Our Lady, which is over 120m in height, and was built in the 14th century. Viewed by many as a masterpiece of architecture, the cathedral also features 47 bells in the tower, a true spectacle when they are rung.
To visit another of the city's great historical buildings, drive your hire car down to the east side of the River Schelde, which runs through the city. Here you will find Het Steen, a medieval castle built in the 13th century, making it one of the oldest buildings in the city. A few streets from here you can also visit the Folklore Museum, which houses many displays on life in the area throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, a great insight into the historic local way of life.
