800 years ago, in February 1221, Antwerp received city rights from the Duke of Brabant. That heralded the beginning of our urban freedoms and rights. Trumpet blasts and drum rolls: our city was born! To celebrate this event, Antwerp by Bike together with Antwerpen à la Carte, organizes a special bike tour in 2021 about the origins of the city and 800 years of development. It is a 3-hour bike tour of the most iconic places in the city. Together with a guide, you will learn everything about Antwerp in the 13th century and how Antwerp developed into the largest city in Flanders. Together we will unravel Antwerp’s DNA!
