Public transport

  • Metropolis will be accessible by tram in 2007. The tram runs from the south of the city, via the central station - route map (pdf) - timetable (pdf). Please note that the tram runs underground in the city centre. Tickets, and a 3 or 5 day pass, are available on the underground platform. The destination for Metropolis is 'Luchtbal'.
  • For those staying in the Holiday Inn Express or Docklands hotels, bus 31 is recommended. Also buses 123 and 7xx.
  • The Novotel Antwerp North is not well served by public transport. Route 31 is probably best, but a car is recommended.
