Antwerp

The province of Antwerp is the most northerly province of Belgium. Its capital is the city of Antwerp but its other major cities are Mechelen and Turnhout, all of which are worth discovering. Its countryside however is not to be forgotten, from the Schelde Estuary to Kalmthout Heath and Mechels Broek. Also recommended are some great cycle routes along the River Schelde; particularly attractive around Bornem.
