Exciting news for everyone planning a visit to Antwerp with kids! A brand new indoor theme park Comics Station Antwerp just opened its doors in the heart of the city. Located inside one of the most beautiful train stations in the world, Comics Station is a unique concept, the first of its kind in Belgium.
We live close to Antwerp and often visit the city with our kids. So we were very excited to hear about this new family-friendly initiative and decided to pay a visit to the Comics Station as soon as it opened.
