Antwerp International Airport, Belgium, is a small international airport located about 6 km southeast from the city of Antwerp.

Antwerp Airport car rental is the best way to explore the region. Belgium is a small country, so prime highlights are easily seen along the journey from Antwerp to Belgium's other major towns of Ghent and Bruges. It and can easily be covered in day trips of less than an hour’s drive.

Apart from exploring the beautiful city of Antwerp, there is the town of Diest, situated in the northeast of the Hageland region; the picturesque and historic canal town, Lier; the impressive town of Mechelen that lies between Brussels and Antwerp on the Dijle river, south from Antwerp; Sint-Niklaas, in the province of East Flanders between the rivers Scheldt and Durme and Oudenaarde, the city of art, located on the left bank of the river Scheldt.
