Favorite (place in the) city

That would be the city of Antwerp in general. Even after working nearly three years in this city, I am still discovering new, surprising areas and places. Choosing one to be my favorite would be close to impossible. The docks, and their unique panorama of the Scheldt, are top contenders however.
