BANKS has such a perfect, central location that you can explore the entire city on foot. The Vrijdagmarkt, the Groenplaats and the ModeNatie are around the corner. As are the Museum Plantin-Moretus, the only printer that is featured on the UNESCO world heritage list. Here, you will find a treasure trove of historic books and original prints, in a magnificent old building.
Would you rather go shopping? Step outside and you will find yourself in the trendiest shopping district of Antwerp. The mix of exclusive designer shops, vintage shops, galleries and small cafés is truly inspiring for each season.
The name BANKS is derived from the ‘(river) banks’ of the Scheldt river. This powerful river is only a stone’s throw away from the hotel; contained by sturdy quay walls, better known as ‘Den Blauwen Steen’.
A stunning spot to meet with friends.
