Velo - Antwerp's city bike sharing

Traffic blocks

Mind!  Due to several roadworks, it is not easy to reach the city centre of Antwerp by car. Therefore we recommend you to come on bike, to use public transport if possible or to park your car on one of the Park & Rides. The website Slim naar Antwerpen centralizes information of all construction sites.

One of the major roadworks are those at the Noorderlijn. From the summer of 2015 until mid 2018 they will affect the 5 main roads in Antwerp: the northern part of the Leien, Londen-Amsterdamstraat, Rijnkaai-Zuid, Hardenvoortviaduct and Noorderlaan. It is inevitable that traffic will be disrupted due to this works. More info on www.noorderlijn.be.

Brussels National Airport (Zaventem)
Every hour a direct coach service departs from Brussels Airport in Zaventem ("Brussel-Nat-Luchthaven" in Dutch) to the Central Station in the city centre of Antwerp. The ride takes about 45 minutes.
