The Port of Antwerp has been a vital link in global trade since the Middle Ages. Over eight centuries the Port has grown from a modest river port to one of the world’s leading ports. Covering an area of 12,068 hectares, about the size of 16,900 football pitches, the Antwerp port area is one of the largest in the world. Today, 150,000 people contribute to this success story, working together towards a flourishing and sustainable future for the Port of Antwerp and its surroundings!

Almost all the products you use in everyday life pass through the port of Antwerp. Brewing barley, coffee, sugar, flour and lots of cocoa. The Port of Antwerp has the largest import of cocoa beans, billions of beans arrive every year. Once they arrive, they are checked again by a 'bonologist' because only the best will be used for our Belgian chocolate. And precisely these raw materials are the real stars of our Sweet Afternoon Cruise.

During this 1.5-hour Flandria cruise you will get to know the Port of Antwerp from a different angle. Literally. Start enjoying 'The best of Antwerp by boat'. Buy a ticket and board!

Note: sweets can be ordered on board separately and are NOT included in the ticket price.
