By Andrew Collins. Belgium's most fashion-forward and trendy city, Antwerp lies in the Flanders region of northern Belgium near the Netherlands border, and is Europe's second-busiest port. Today, with a population of nearly , and an abundance of fashionable boutiques, restaurants, hotels, and gay cafes, the city has developed a reputation as one of Europe's hippest gay destinations. The focal point of Antwerp, the Grote Markt Great Market is an open pedestrian square anchored by the famed statue of Brabo, and a mix of civic buildings, open-air cafes, and ornate guildhouses, From this vantage point, near the northwest corner of the square, you see the statue in the foreground, and the iconic Onze Lieve Vrouwekathedraal Cathedral of Our Lady towering over everything in the distance.
Behind where I shot this photo is the city's Town Hall, famous for its Renaissance design. One of Belgium's leading producers of chocolates, Leonidas Hoogstraat has branches throughout the country and in several other nations around the world.
Although there are arguably finer and more unusual chocolatiers in Antwerp, Leonidas is a reliably superb chocolate maker with very attractive prices, and this location on the edge of Grote Markt is especially convenient. One of Europe's most attractive and popular GLBT bookstores, Boekhandel 't Verschil lies along one of Antwerp's main north-south thoroughfares at Minderbroedersrui 33 , just a few blocks east-northeast of the Grote Markt square.
Inside the well-lighted, attractive space you'll find a huge selection of gay and lesbian titles mostly in Flemish and Dutch, but a number of titles in English, too , from novels and travel guides to erotic fiction and gay nude photo books. There's also a small cafe, with tables along the sidewalk when the weather warms up.
The owners of 't Verschil also operate De Onderkant, a sexy gay-underwear and sex-toys shop, directly across the street. Run by the same team who operates the popular Boekhandel 't Verschil gay bookstore and cafe across the street, De Onderkant Minderbroedersrui 42 is Antwerp's most popular gay underwear, sex toy, and swimwear boutique.
