The active Port 

Do you know that the port of Antwerp is the most important European steel port? And that Antwerp is the second most important chemical cluster in the world only preceded by Houston in Texas? "The active Port" shows the port in full action. You will visit different companies in the port area and discover how coffee, bananas and steel reach their destination. Different items will be treated such as cargo handling, port infrastructure, employment, economical importance and natural values. The tour includes a visit to our interactive exibition to show the unexpected sides of the port.

Do you prefer to come for half a day? Do you just want to visit our exhibition? Would you like to order sandwiches for lunch or a hot meal? Contact us for a tailormade programme.
