The Antwerp ghost walk is a storytelling tour that combines the best of an Anglo-Saxon ghost walk with a good dash of Antwerp flair and joking. You will discover traditional folk and ghost stories, taken to heart by the people of Antwerp and thus declared to be true. Their greatest tormentor, the Lange Wapper, is of course discussed, but does this terrifying figure also have a good side?
The classic ghosts all pass by: Mie Trottinet, Sus Antigoon, Mie de Dulle, … Each of them guarantees a punishing story, in which we also hear echoes of the everyday yet strange life in the city of yesteryear. Some remarkable true histories complete the story: events from our Golden Age often turn out to have a bloody edge.
Discover this dark past while wandering around the small streets of old Antwerp. Learn all about the fear that rises from the black water and grabs everyone by the throat. Fear of ghosts and spirits, murder, crime and retribution.
Through centuries-old sagas and legends, relive exciting and incredible stories about heroes and sinners. Follow their footsteps, see the city in a different light and it will never be the same again!
