City brewery De Koninck
Discover Antwerp's city brewery, ‘De Koninck'. Combine your meeting with a local taste experience. Explore 10 interactive rooms and discover Antwerp's history, the brewery and the origin of the iconic local beer. Reward yourself with a ‘Bolleke' during a beer tasting.
Discover the hotspots and some hidden corners of Antwerp while you golf. You can even go one step further by opting for City Beer Golf. In addition to an unconventional game of golf, you get to sample three delicious Antwerp regional beers.
Unlike traditional golf, you don't aim for a hole in City Golf, but at a statue, bench, fountain, and so on. The player who reaches the target with the least number of strokes is the winner.
Each session begins with an initiation, and an instructor takes you through the city after that. The focus is on the game of golf and on discovering Antwerp in a fun way.
City Golf is a group activity (from 4 people) and is also ideal for team building. You don't need any golf experience to enjoy City Golf.
One of the city's most well-known landmarks is the Antwerp's Diamond District which trades 85% of all rough diamonds, 50% of cut diamonds and 40% of industrial diamonds, and its daily transactions are worth USD 127 million. You can explore mining, polishing and cutting processes at Diamondland, Antwerp's largest diamond showroom. The Diamond Cocktail is a way to add something new and different to your event, whether during the cocktail hour, dinner, or any other time during the event.
The Diamond Cocktail itself is a glass of champagne with a three mm brilliant cut stone in it. Most of the stones are cubic zirconia, but according to the direction of the client, some of the stones are genuine diamonds. Attached to the glass is a small green cord with a card that reads, "Let's drink to a sparkling future. However, drink with care, for each glass contains a diamond. Or is it a fake...?"
