With so much going on at Darklands it is easy to forget that you are staying in a beautiful historic city. Antwerp is known as the Diamond Capital of the world, so check out the range of jewellery shops around the central station (many are closed on Saturday but open Sunday). The zoo, also near Antwerp Centraal station, is one of the oldest and most unusual in Europe. And the railway station itself is regularly voted one of the most beautiful on the planet. The Meir, which runs from Antwerp Centraal down towards the old town, is where Antwerpenaren go to shop. Walk a bit further towards the river and you come to the old part of town and the cathedral. At night it’s like a Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. Maybe add a day or two to your travel plans to take it all in. Darklands do organise a great fetish bus tour, and in 2020 there may be a fetish boat tour to consider.
