den blauwen esel

'Den Blauwen Esel' is a complex of three studio apartments, located in a 16th century building, right in the historic center of Antwerp, within walking distance of the cathedral, museums, restaurants, bars and shopping streets. 

Our studios are available for short or medium term rentals. 

Right outside you'll find the city bikes that can be rented out for a day.

It takes you a five minutes walk to find the magnificent Cathedral of Our Lady, the old square (Grote Markt) or Green Square (Groenplaats).
At 200m are the Rockoxhouse, St. Anne chapel or the Late Gothic St. James church.

You can visit several museums nearby including the Rubens House, the MAS or the Museum Plantin-Moretus .

Also for shopping there can not be a better location! Around the corner you'll find the Meir where you can shop at familiar big brand stores like Zara, Massimo Dutti, H&M, Diesel, Nike, ... Don't forget to visit the Shopping Stadsfeestzaal in a beautifully renovated historic building on the Meir, which has around 30 shops distributed over four levels and also offers food and drink establishments.
Vintage shoppers should check out the "Nationalestraat" where the Fashion Museum is located.
More exclusive brand shoppers that like American Vintage, Karl Lagerfeld, Gucci, and Chanel will get their fix in the "Schuttershofstraat" also located right near the Meir.
