Noyau historique d'Antwerpen -Anvers- de l'Escaut aux anciens remparts de vers 1250 is part of the Tentative list of Belgium in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The historic core of Antwerp shows the history of this port city on the River Scheldt from the 13th century to the present. Its growth due to its prosperity as a trading city since the 16th century can be seen in the ever expanding lay-out of the city. Fortifications were added in different phases.

Noyau historique d'Antwerpen -Anvers (T) by Matejicek

Antwerp is very interesting city that I had opportunity to visit and enjoy several times. But I dare to say that the proposed TWHS - city center within the walls from 1250 - is not the most appealing feature of Antwerp - one can see something simillar even in other parts of Belgium and Netherlands. Furthermore, it has already 3 gorgeous WHS, and I think it will stay that way!

However, I must admit that Grote Markt and the interior of the cathedral have wow-effect to me every visit (even at night - PHOTO). The main reason for my visit to Antwerp is usualy It is unbelieveble that there is so long list of fashion designers conected somehow to Antwerp, and I really love the view from Mode Museum towards Modepaleis Dries van Noten and the huge cathedral tower. Other ineteresting places: Berchem district with Art Nouveau villas, the area around Sint Carolus Borromeuskerk, Sint-Annatunnel, the main railway station, etc... and relaxed lively atmosphere all around.

Interesting site to visit while in Antwerp but not worthy of WHS status IMHO.
