While walking through Antwerp, I came across different types of mural art.
If you ever are visiting Belgium, you should definitely taste our chocolate. It tastes gorgeous, if I may say so myself.
The chocolate line is a new and adorable chocolate shop on the Meir, one of the busiest shopping streets in Antwerp. Just enter the shop and you can really smell the chocolate. If you are even more curious and want to know how the chocolate has been made, you surely should take a look in the factory kitchen behind windows. It’s interesting to see how they create the little chocolate animals and other goodies. They also have gigantic chocolate sculptures like the “Barpapapas” and the “Big head”.
They have a large selection of chocolate and great gift ideas to take home with you.
Just a quick review what tourists may encounter in Antwerp. I will add more on my next discovery trip to Antwerp.
“According to folklore, and as celebrated by the statue in front of the town hall, the city got its name from a legend involving a mythical giant called Antigoon who lived near the river Scheldt. He exacted a toll from those crossing the river, and for those who refused, he severed one of their hands and threw it into the river Scheldt. Eventually, the giant was slain by a young hero named Brabo, who cut off the giant’s own hand and flung it into the river. Hence the name Antwerpen, from Dutch hand werpen – akin to Old English hand and wearpan (= to throw), which has changed to today’s warp” – Source: Wikipedia.
