Industrial and Cultural Diamond on the River Scheldt and the place where OsEAN will be holding the seventh “Open Forum for Osteopathic Education” conference.

Antwerp, long a major trading city in the Low Countries, is home to Europe’s second largest port, is the world capital of the diamond trade, and the second largest petrochemical centre in the world…

Hip and trendy – and a pioneer in fine art, design, contemporary architecture and fashion – the City on the River Scheldt is home to famous painters such as iconic Flemish Baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens and Sir Anthony van Dijck. Many such paintings can be found in museums and churches throughout the city. In recent years, canvas has been replaced by cotton, with fashion designers becoming the artists of note.

Food lovers will also be impressed by the many local delicacies and beautiful dinner venues in historic settings. Highlights include Felix Pakhuis, Paleis op de Meir, Amuz and The Jane, recently crowned the most beautiful restaurant in the world.

With its bustling cultural life, thriving trade and gastronomic pearls, Antwerp is the ideal location for your next meeting, conference or incentive activity.*

Antwerp is also the home town of OsEAN member school: FICO Osteopathy Academy Belgium.
