InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Antwerp

Hello to all Americans in Antwerp! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Antwerp? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Antwerp which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Antwerp sometimes feels like a crossroads between history and modernism. The Belgian city is a vibrant city known for its historical buildings, a port which is one of the largest in Europe, the local fashion scene with the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, and much more! With the network of bus and tram lines — with the latter called premetro whenever underground — as well as numerous bikeways, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the Borgerhout, Deurne, or Wilrijk districts, for example, which are all well-served by public transportation and at most a 40-minute commute away from Antwerp’s center.

Although Antwerp has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Antwerp, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
