In Antwerp, there is a large number of rental apartments on the market. Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed? The search for an apartment becomes a bit easier when you know which neighbourhood you would like to live in.
Are you not very familiar with the city and are you not sure which neighbourhood would be ideal for you? Below, we will discuss the properties of a few popular neighbourhoods in Antwerp. This way, you’ll feel more confident when starting your journey in search of your new apartment in Antwerp!
Renting an apartment in the bustling centre of Antwerp?
The historical centre of Antwerp is very quaint. Small streets with cobble stones, ancient houses and many shops, cafés and restaurants. Something’s always going on in the centre.
All you need to do is step out onto your doorstep and you’re right in the middle of the bustling heart of Antwerp. The Meir is the perfect place for shopping; on the Mechelseplein or Hendrik Conscienceplein, you can enjoy a drink or a snack among the locals and in the botanical garden Den Botaniek, you can have lunch surrounded by nature.
Another great advantage to living in the centre is the great accessibility of everything. You live nearby the Central Station, several busses leave from the Franklin Rooseveltplaats to places outside Antwerp and there is always a tram stop within walking distance.
Do you enjoy pleasant hussle and bustle? In that case, a rental apartment in the centre of Antwerp would definitely be something for you would love.
Do you feel more at home in trendy Zuid?
Zuid is an stunning neighbourhood with a lot of flair. Elegant houses, art galleries, museums, small boutiques, restaurants and trendy cafés and lunch places. Every bon vivant will feel right at home here.
This trendy neighbourhood is located near the city centre, but is more restful. Would you like to get a first taste of Zuid? Go for a drink on the Marnixplaats or visit the Fotomuseum situated at the Waalse kaai.
Or is the sublime Zurenborg more to your liking?
The neighbourhood Zurenborg is situated not far from the city centre. In the residential neighbourhood, you can still hear the birds chirping and you are able to park your car in the street quite easily.
Zurenborg is known for its cosy Draakplaats which consists of a number of cafés, but also places where foodies can indulge. The neighbourhood has a few amazing restaurants such as Euterpa and Dôme en Cuichine.
Something typical for Zurenborg is the unique architecture from the age La Belle Époque. Especially in the street named Cogels-Osylei, you can find a number of stunning Art Nouveau buildings from around 1900. Do you like living in a calm and characterful environment? Then you should rent an apartment in this Antwerp neighbourhood.
A furnished or unfurnished apartment in Antwerp?
A second important question to ask yourself during your search for a rental apartment in Antwerp is if you’d like to rent a furnished or unfurnished apartment.
The advantage of a furnished apartment is of course that you barely have to move in any furniture. Very convenient, especially when coming to Antwerp as an expat.
The apartments of RentMore are usually rented out fully furnished and are decorated with care. You will feel right at home in our furnished apartments.
