How to get here

DIVA is easily accessible on foot, by bicycle, public transport and car.

On foot or by bicycle

DIVA is located right behind the Grote Markt in the pedestrian zone in the historic center. You can leave your bicycle in one of the bicycle racks on the Suikerui.

By 'Velo' (hire bike)

If you use an Antwerpen Velo hire bike to come to DIVA, you’ll find a station near the Steen (station 059). On the other side of the Suikerrui, there is also a station on the Grote Markt (Wisselstraat, station 060).

By train, tram or bus

The Suikerrui is close to the Grote Markt and Groenplaats. It is easy to reach by tram or bus. See for the most up-to-date information.

The rail network is well connected with bus and tram routes. If you are coming to DIVA from the Ghent direction, take the train to Antwerpen-Zuid (Antwerp South) station. From other directions you would do best to get off at Antwerpen-Centraal (Central Station).

  • From Antwerpen-Centraal station: take tram 3, 5, 9 or 15 to the Groenplaats
  • From Antwerpen-Zuid station: take tram 4 or bus 181 or 183 to the Groenplaats
  • From the Groenplaats walk towards the Cathedral of Our Lady and from there to the Grote Markt. Continue towards the Steen (castle). You’ll find DIVA on the right-hand side. 

By boat
