Modepaleis and Cathedral

Seen from the junction of the Nationalestraat and the Kammenstraat, the Antwerp Cathedral and het Modepaleis - literally “Palace of Fashion” - give this part of the city a special ambience, even on a dreary rainy winter evening. 
Both are landmarks on the tourist trail and striking reminders of Antwerp’s glorious past and its present renown as a fashion mecca.
