Nello and Patrasche Statue

Perhaps the most adorable Instagram-worthy spot in Antwerp, the Nello and Patrasche Statue on Handschoenmark is definitely a must-see. Street art is common in European cities, especially in artistic hubs like Antwerp, Barcelona, Paris, and more. However, what makes the Nello and Patrasche Statue so unique is that it still incorporates the street itself. The cobblestone road on Handschoenmark serves as the cozy blanket that warms Nello and Pastrach, the cuddling duo from the 1872 novel “A Dog of Flanders' by Marie Louise de la Ramée. Your will followers will definitely drop a like or two and even share comments on how cute your snapshot is when you post it!

Sint-Anna Tunnel

Doesn't Sint-Anna Tunnel look like the perfect setting for an artistic film? When you see it on Instagram or even in real life, you'd swear you've seen it from a David Lynch or Wes Anderson movie. Sure, on its own, this 572 meter-long tunnel under the Scheldt River looks pretty normal. But in certain angles, the way pale yellow walls glow and the narrowing path make it looks oh so intriguing. Almost cinematic in a way too! It's no wonder many travel Instagrammers often take a selfie or snapshot of the place when they're visiting Antwerp.

The Rubens House

Undoubtedly one of the most famous museums in all of Antwerp, The Rubens House is definitely an Instagram-worthy spot. However, you can only take pictures of the Renaissance architecture that is the legendary Flemish painter's former residence. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed in The Rubens House. So as much as you want to post about and share many of Peter Paul Rubens's amazing works, it is strictly prohibited. But on the flip side, at least the building itself is a beautiful man-made marvel, particularly its grand courtyard. Doesn't this place look so romantic?
