Jachthaven Antwerpen is located on the left side of the river, about 15 minutes walk from the medieval town centre. The town centre offers lots of attractions, places of interest and leisure facilities. Due to its prime geographical position and the availability of major routes to all major towns, Antwerp is an ideal base for the exploration of Flanders and the rest of Europe. Antwerp is also a good starting place from which to enter the Belgian and Dutch inland waterway systems. Locks are open from 08:00 to 22:00. For access outside these times 12 hours’ notice is required.
