Het Nachtegalenpark: only a few minutes drive from Antwerp city. This is a large and beautiful park with very various vegetation. If you have children, this park is a dream.

Very near to the Nachtegalen park you have Park Den Brandt. Here you can find a large castle, a lovely pond with some ducks and swans and many bridges all over the place. This park doesn‘t have a playground, therefore it‘s much quieter than the others. Ideal if  you‘re looking for a quiet and peaceful place to make your quarantine walk.

Close to these lovely parks we have an amazing apartment for expats: Eglantier.


Rivierenhof is a leafy, expansive green space featuring ponds, trails, play equipment & an outdoor concert venue. The park also contains a large lake along with a super rose garden and cafe. With a surface area of ​​132 hectares, “Provincial Domain Rivierenhof” is the largest park in the city of Antwerp.Get lost here in one of the warm quarantainedays but keep your distance!

Don‘t forget the rules

Of course it is important that everyone sticks to the rules and the best thing of all is to stay inside. But we all know that sometimes this is not easy, however, if you do go for a walk, choose the nearest park and respect the rules!
