#TheBeacon

The Beacon is in the centre of Antwerp and the port, located at the heritage site The Tolhuis where leading maritime companies used to have their home. Surrounded by restaurants and bars this is the place to be with the lively dirstrict’t Eilandje just a stone’s throw away.

With one of the best views at the banks of the Schelde, The Beacon is a very accessible location, reachable by all means of transport.

Sail in, fly in, drive in, bike in or just take the train and tram and walk in!
