The 5 most impressive towers in Antwerp

1) Cathedral

The north spire of Antwerp Cathedral slowly rose above the city’s rooftops between 1420 and 1518. The architect designed the upper sections in a beautiful Brabant Gothic style, creating the tallest spire in the Low Countries, at 123 metres. Concerts are played on the carillon in the tower every Sunday, from May to September, from 3 pm to 4 pm. You can also catch evening concerts in July and August, on Mondays from 8 pm to 9 pm.
