Bicycle tour: Borders of the city

Bike along former city boundaries to witness the city’s expansion

  • Discover by bike how Antwerp systematically expanded
  • Join a group (only in Dutch) or book a private tour
  • Also possible with an e-bike

On this guided bike tour, you will explore the old and new borders of the city. With your guide, look for the earliest traces of Antwerp and admire recent urban development at the same time. You will experience roughly chronologically how the city has expanded over the centuries and learn why the city is always in motion.

Book a private tour

Would you like to book a guide for a bike tour along Antwerp’s historical and symbolic borders? That’s possible all year round at any time of the day. You can book the bicycle tour “borders of the city” for groups with 8 participants or more.

Price for a private tour

A 3-hour tour costs 29.5 euros per person (22.5 euros if you bring your own bike) for 8 to 20 participants.

Less than 8 or more than 20 participants

  • If your group is smaller than 8 participants, you can still book a private tour, but in that case, we ask you to pay for 8 people.
  • If your group has more than 20 participants, we will use several guides. The price then depends on the size of the group and the desired route. Request a price proposal via
