Every year hundreds of river cruise ships visit Antwerp. Days with eight or more river cruise ships docked at the same time are no rarity in the city. Because the river cruise ships visit Antwerp in such large numbers it is not possible to let them all dock in one single place. Therefore the ships are spread out over three berth places in the city:      - the Scheldt Quays      - the Willemdok      - the Kattendijkdok Below you can find information about all three berth places.

Berth place - Scheldt Quays
The river cruise ships that dock at the Scheldt Quays can do so at Quay 18 & 19, just behind the elevated  promenade Zuiderterras, at the bus parking. Up to six river cruise ships can dock here at the same time in two blocks of three ships next to each other. Scheldt Quay 18 & 19 are centrally located and visitors can easily reach the historic city centre after a short walk on foot. After just a few minutes you stand in front of the medieval fortress ‘Het Steen’, or on the ‘Grote Markt’ with its beautiful town hall and guild houses. From there the Cathedral of Our Lady is only a few steps away.

Berth place - Kattendijkdok
The place where the majority of the river cruise ships dock is the Kattendijkdok on the North side of the city. The ships berth at both the West and East side of the dock. On busy days several cruise ships will be docked alongside each other. The berth place is close to several interesting museums.  Both the Red Star Line Museum and the MAS  (Museum Aan de Stroom) are only 300 metres away from the cruise quay.

Berth place - Willemdok
The Willemdok is located on the North side of Antwerp, not far from the Kattendijkdok. The Willemdok also hosts the marina of the city. The river cruise ships berth at the Napoleonkaai, the northern quay of the dock. From there the MAS  (Museum Aan de Stroom) is located at 500 metres from the quay, and the Red Star Line Museum at a  distance of 700 metres.
