The "Meir" is one of the biggest shopping streets of Belgium. Not far from the trainstation you reach the Meir in 5 minutes. You find there all the well-knowned shops.

Lovely long and wide shopping street with more common street stores and some more quirky local ones. A street that runs parallel is designer after designer but Meir is more Uniqglo, New Look, Esprit, H&M etc.

Busy street but set up well with plenty of room for pedestrians to roam. For young adults plenty of hip stores to visit and restaurants to stop. Feels safe with local police supervising. And when you get tired of walking be sure to check out the possibility to use the "velo-antwerpen" bicycles. € 4 per day to use within the... More

A large street full of shops of any kind (food, clothes, gadgets, shoes, ...), if you can't find here what you need you probably won't find it anywhere else in Antwerpen.

Meir is the main shopping area in Antwerp. The street is car free zone. Most of the well known high street stores are located here. Several sandwich ,Belgian waffle ,ice cream shops. Easy access with tram. Whether you really need to buy something or just wind shop, it's worth spending your time in Meir.

In this shoppingstreet you will not only find world famous brands, but also the splendor of historic buildings above the shops. Visit the Royal Palace, the "Stadsfeestzaal or the "Rubenshuis" ; all places that remind us of the history of Antwerp.
