In the district of Wilrijk, just outside the city center, you can take a pleasant walk through one of Antwerp's most attractive parks and enjoy a unique collection of modern sculpture. Middelheim park is splendid with plenty of high oaks and beach trees and a late 18th century castle. The property was bought by the city of Antwerp in 1910 for use as an open-air museum.
