The Meir, Diamantwijk, and Centraal Station
Here you'll find two of Antwerp's defining elements: Peter Paul Rubens (represented by his home and numerous works found in the surrounding neighborhood) and the Diamantwijk, world center of the diamond trade, which tells the story of Antwerp. The Centraal Station and adjacent zoo at the hub of the bustling district are both architectural gems.
