Hansahuis (Antwerpen)

One of the first office buildings in Antwerp. Built by architect Jos Hertogs [1897 – 1901]. Sculptor Jef Lambeaux (Brabo statue on the Grote Markt) placed a number of mythological figures representing the commercial god Mercury against the facade. Just in the back ‘Het Redershuis’ is an imposing building dating from 1896 in Antwerpen (BE) where you can find the Eugeen Van Mieghem [1875-1930] Museum. He was fascinated by the thousands of emigrants who sailed to America with the legendary shipping company Red Star Line of Antwerp, in search of happiness. But because food is the ‘Best Way to Learn a Culture’ you may enjoy the best place in Antwerpen for the spareribs just out of the building at the famous Amadeus resto.

Brewery De Hoorn

Stella-Artois beer has a long history. In 1366 already, the brewery “Den Hoorn” (the Horn, in Flemish and still present on the current logo) was already producing this very famous beer. Sébastien Artois repossessed the company in 1708, later in 1926 the brand Stella-Artois was born and the beer becomes famous worldwide. The brewery is based in Leuven (Belgium) and you can still check the old Main room containing 8 huge copper beer cuves, each one of them containng more than 15,000 liter.
