The Pastoral Tourism Service, Antwerp (TOPA) guarantees cultural-historical access to the religious heritage of the city and the diocese of Antwerp.
In our scientific and didactic information we focus on Christian iconography and symbolism and on the interwovenness with the local socio-cultural life.
Discover our multilingual websites and our publications on the numerous monumental churches of the diocese of Antwerp. If you are looking for a spiritual and/or cultural-historical interpretation of our religious art treasures, you will find what you are looking for.
Visit our beautiful churches and be guided by our motivated TOPA guides. You will be amazed by the eventful history and the rich artfulness of our ecclesiastical patrimony.
With this site, we, the people of Antwerp, would like to give you an extra welcome in our city. A deeper sense of hospitality encourages us to see our visitor not as an anonymous ‘tourist’, but as a ‘guest’. We would therefore like to welcome visitors from other countries with information specific to their country. For no less than 14 countries we have a tailor-made booklet that highlights the frequent relationships between their country and our city of Antwerp.
We would also like to help you find a suitable church service in our city: for Catholics the Sunday Eucharist, possibly in your own language, and from an ecumenical point of view also the services of the Orthodox churches, the Anglican and Protestant churches, as far as affiliated to the Antwerp Council of Churches.
This website covers the churches throughout Antwerp, including all districts.
