Getting Around in AntwerpEdit This
The train station, or the 'Railway Cathedral', is connected with the rest of the city by tram, bus and metro. Tickets can be bought in advance or on the spot. However, a 24-hours pass can only be bought at the Diamant Underground Station (open Mon.-Frid. 8am-12:30pm & 1:30am-4pm) [see below]. The city centre is easily explored by foot. Most sights are between the Central Station and the Scheldt, with a high concentration of churches and cathedrals around the Grote Markt.
The local bus operator, De Lijn http://www.delijn.be, offers extremely cheap tickets covering all of Flanders - a day ticket ('dagpas net') costs just EUR 5 (as at June 2005) and a week's travel ('7-dagenpas net) only EUR 10. According to the website, these tickets are sold by the (multi-lingual) ticket machines as well as by drivers and at DeLijn information offices.
