Antwerp is a pocket-sized city and many of Antwerp Art Weekend's locations are within walking distance from one another. But if you'd like to get somewhere fast or farther, a bike or public transport is the way to go.
By bike or Velo:
The fastest and easiest way to get around is by bike. If you don't own one or are a visitor to the city, you can rent out a Velo, the city's own bike service. It's very cheap and there's bike stations all around town. We recommend downloading the Velo app for your convenience.
By public transport with De Lijn:
A good way to cover larger distances and travel between different parts of town is by using public transport. Let the tram, bus or metro take you from one cluster of art spaces to the next. We recommend downloading the De Lijn app for your convenience.
