The "Zuidrand"

Besides its pleasant urban buzz Antwerp, along with some nearby municipalities, can offer the beautiful country park known "Zuidrand" (southern border). This open space is characterized by stream valleys, castle estates and farmhouses harbouring a rich past. How about a bike ride along the Antwerp Fortification Belt? A perfect mixture of nature and history. The "Zuidrand", simply delectable!
