POINTS OF INTEREST

Port of Antwerp

Although the Port of Antwerp is 88 km (53 miles) from the sea, it is Europe's second-largest port (after Rotterdam) and the 10th largest in the world. Giant locks facilitate navigation up the river Scheldt; the Berendrecht measures 546 yards by 74 yards. Every year, 178.2 million tons of goods are shipped here, serving a vast area stretching across half of Europe. Surprisingly, in the midst of all this hustle and bustle is a traditional fishing village, Lillo, nestled among the enormous refineries, the tankers, and the buildings of the chemical industries.
