Bullinckplaats – Quiet place in the city center

One of the many things that I like about Antwerp, is that there is a spot for everyone to love. For a quiet place with lots of sunlight and nobody to disturb you, you don’t need to go to the forest – I visit the Bullinckplaats for these occassions. It is in the city center right next to many of the touristic highlights and still this is an unknown, hidden, public place, not even known by many locals. This place is so unknown, that it can not even be found on Google maps!

At least once a year (mostly in the summer), I will grab myself a good book and a bottle of home made iced tea to finish both on a bench in the sun by the end of the day. Occasionally you will see someone living around the corner, bringing their own sun lounger to also finish a book or two.

If you are visiting with kids, bring some toys. There are no cars here, so it is safe to play. If you see me with my book and iced tea though, please tell them to keep it quiet. 🙂
