How to get there

By car

  • Put the address (valkenveld 70, Wilrijk) in your gps
  • It is next to the "viaduct' in antwerp
  • There is a lot of parking space in the 'Valkenveld'-street
  • You would be extra cool if you could pick up people that don't have a car..
    • --> 4 seats left from Brussels. Denis De Messemacker (ddm) will leave Brussels by Sat. 4:45pm. from Auderghem, rue de la Vignette, 105. It's 200m away from metro station "Demey". Please contact Denis (+32 474449399) (French-English Speaking) if you plan to leave with him. I can/will also bring back people. As it will be late for metro, I can even drop them by their home.
