Meir is a shopping street. Shopping zone with old Rococo buildings with very famous fashion shops. On a Saterday afternoon the street and the restaurants was very busy.

Perfect for fun shopping because this big avenue has all well known high street labels. I particularly like Uniqlo. Also very good because this is a pedestrian street.

I walk here a lot, since this is the great shopping street of Antwerp, and its really in the centre of town . All the big stores are here, and in the surrounding area you find a lot of nice smaller shops

Every major city in Belgium has them ; the crowded pedestrian shopping streets with the same stores, same buskers and the same petty crime. But my honest opinion, the Antwerp one : cleaner, larger, safer and far more to see around. If you would like to combine visiting and shopping ; the Meir is probably your best shot!
