Driving in Antwerp, which is the second largest city in Belgium, just after Brussels, is not complicated as the city is well signposted. However, some drivers may find crossroads or the one-way roads in Antwerp downtown a bit confusing.We have put together a list of useful tips which will make driving your car hire in Belgium a breeze. Be sure to take a look before your journey. Park your car hire near the city centre in one of the many underground guarded car parks and explore the historic area on foot. Finding a parking space in the centre may be challenging but not impossible. Please be aware that parking there is limited and chargeable. In most parking bays, it is free to park your rental car during the night. However, do not forget to check the signs and parking meters beforehand.
The coastal location of Antwerp in the northernmost part of Belgium is responsible for the city's humid, nautical climate. With the climate being mostly nautical, you can expect mild, rainy days in all seasons. Summer temperatures do not soar too high, so that visiting Antwerp in July and August can be quite pleasant.

Antwerp Airport, also known as Luchthaven Antwerpen, is a modest size international airport, located about 4 miles from the city centre.
Antwerp is said to be a pocket-sized city, quite easy to get around in. Since one fifth of the centre is used exclusively as a pedestrian zone, pedestrians will be prioritised there, especially during various cultural events in summer. The city of Antwerp is served by buses and trams, which cover the whole city. Purchase a day ticket, which is the most affordable one, and explore the inner city of Antwerp. Tickets can be obtained either from bus and tram drivers or at ticket machines, where they will be slightly discounted.
