Tip 1: The Royal Museum of Fine Arts: a monumental neoclassical building with stately rooms with an impressive collection of paintings dating from the 14th century includes works of famous masters like Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling and Gerard David are found here. 17th century masters from Rubens, Antoon van Dyck are also represented.
 
Tip 2: Fashion Museum: MoMu is located in the much celebrated fashion complex home also to both the Flanders Fashion institute and fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine arts. Sticking firmly to avant-garde, MoMu changes its exhibits every six months.
 
Tip 3: Rubens house: the prestigious home and studio of the city's most celebrated painter, Pieter Paul Rubens. It is divided in two: the living quarters and an elaborate art gallery where Rubens displayed sculptures and paintings by artists he admired and the studio where the master himself taught and wrote.
 
Tip 4: Diamond district: In this quarter are the gold and diamond shops newly located inside Central Station. Here you'll find people from all over the world. Orthodox Jewish men clad and traders with briefcases handcuffed to their wrists hurry into diamond exchanges and armed guards keep watch over the streets where multimillion-euro deals are going down.
 
Tip 5: Stadsfeestzaal: The 19th-century neoclassical architecture of this former city festival hall is jaw-dropping, particularly when viewed from the champagne-glass-shaped platform rising beneath its glass roof. It contains a shopping mall, but the building is the real star.
 
Tip 6: Museum Plantin-Moretus: The World Heritage-listed museum is home to the world's first industrial printing works. Room after room is filled with ancient presses, copper plates, old globes, Flemish tapestries and, of course, splendid manuscripts, including a rare copy of the Gutenberg Bible.
 
Tip 7: Royal Flemish Opera: a stunning building from 1907 were you can hear a performance by the Royal Flemish Opera. A marbled interior and the quality of the performers is superb.
 
Tip 8: The Fashion Palace: Dries Van Noten is Belgium's commercial fashion leader. His colourful bohemian clothes are sold in more than 500 shops around the world, but buyers love his Antwerp flagship, The Fashion Palace. This headquarters and shop of Dries Van Noten is located in a distinct, 19th-century, domed building in the heart of St Andries.
 
Tip 9: Fridays market: The city's oldest antique flea market has been operating on this square every Friday morning since the 16th century. Everything is sold by auction, with sales going down in fast guttural Flemish. They speak English also.
 
Tip 10: Antwerp here we have to write a tip about.
