Weather in Antwerp

Antwerp has a sub-oceanic, humid climate marked by relatively cold winters and refreshingly cool summers brought in by the Atlantic Ocean. It’s regarded as a great year-round destination.

Summer (June to September) sees pleasantly warm and sunny weather with average temperatures between 20°C and 25°C (68°F and 77°F). August is typically the hottest month, but some say summer is a good time to visit Antwerp because many inhabitants go on holiday. Note that July has the greatest rainfall.

Autumn (October and November) offers cold, wet and windy weather. The average temperature falls in the mid-teens (around 55°F) and the sunshine is far less frequent.

Winter (December to February) is generally unpleasant, as night-time temperatures hover around freezing and sit a few degrees above this during the day. January is the coldest month, and while snowfall is frequent it is not abundant.

Spring (March to May) sees the sunshine levels gradually rise. The period has an average temperature of 18°C (65°F), which is a pleasant climate to explore street markets and festivals galore. This means late spring and early autumn are probably the best times to visit Antwerp, as you’ll avoid summer tourists without having to endure chilly drops in temperature.

Firean Hotel

Built in 1929, the Firean Hotel is reputed to be one of the most charming hotels in Belgium. This hotel is an Art-deco mansion that the actual owners restored in 1986. They take pride in offering outstanding quality and service with thoughtful gestures. One of the proprietors welcomes guests upon arrival, acquainting visitors with the space.

 

Tra Noi

Located in the heart of the fashion district, this superb little guesthouse is owned by Danielle, a friendly lady who has two apartments and a guest bedroom that she rents out at very reasonable rates. Danielle used to work in the fashion industry, so the decor is stylish and slightly eccentric (there’s an antique rowing boat hanging from the ceiling of one apartment), but the city centre location is almost unbeatable.

Hotel Postiljon

Nestled in the shadow cast by the neighbouring cathedral, this long-established Antwerp hotel offers simple, clean and elegant rooms. It may be small with no frills, but considering its prime location opposite the city’s biggest landmark, Hotel Postiljon offers fantastic value for money.

Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel

Less characterful than some Antwerp hotels, though no less luxurious, the Astrid is a towering modern building that borrows elements from older styles. Boasting some 200 rooms of 5-star lavishness, it’s situated directly opposite Antwerp's Centraal station. Guests have full use of the leisure facilities, including a health centre.

Hotel Julien

A short walk from Groenplaats Square, this elegant and cosy Antwerp hotel is a beautiful mix of old and new. The rooms sport minimalist designer décor and all amenities blend seamlessly with original medieval features. Friendly staff preside over the space, and the roof terrace provides sweeping city views.

Leonardo Hotel

Located near Antwerp's Centraal Station, Leonardo Hotel has 96 spacious bedrooms, which are smart, clean and contemporary. The location is great for exploring the diamond district and for onward travel, but not so good for the historic Old Town, which is a fair walk away. But the price is right and the summer terrace is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast.
