Travel directions

"Standard train station" for arrival by train in the city center of Antwerp is "Antwerpen Centraal". The train station closest to Campus Middelheim is "Antwerpen-Berchem".

Navigating within Antwerp: app "Smart ways to Antwerp" or Google maps...

How to get from the city center to Campus Middelheim (and back): Bus 21 and 33 connect the train station "Antwerpen Centraal" to the train station "Antwerpen-Berchem" and to Campus Middelheim [bus 21: use bus stop Lindendreef. Bus 33: use bus stop Koninklijkelaan. If you exit at the following stops you'll find yourself in front/back of a big hospital and must walk back 300m.] Attention: (1) There are road works in the city center so that the bus stop at "Antwerpen Centraal" may have been moved away from its standard location. (2) Be prepared to pay the bus ride cash in small bills or coins at the bus driver since ticket vending machines are not very common...
