Reminds me of St Pancras in London - just an architectural marvel of a place, that dominates this part of the city. Beautiful and functional.

Just catching the train here is an occasion. Multiple levels connected by escalators take you through the building's impressive artifice. Do stop and take photographs but don't miss your train!

Each time you enter Antwerp Central station you cannot help but be in awe by the shear grandeur of the building's fantastic architecture. Stop and take the time to take a 360 degree view and you too will be amazed.

I have to say, this was unexpected! The archaic tyre is very grand , certainly understand why they call it a cathedral. Also, the trains go from 3 levels!! How cool is that!

If you are in the area, check out the main building - it's spacious and has amazing architecture - go inside and stand in the middle of the dome structure. Main dome designed by Louis Delacenserie

This must be one of the most beautiful railway stations of the world. Really impressive and right in the centre of town, next to the keyserlei with its restaurants and shops, the diamond area and the zoo.
