Distance:

In 2019, we will continue hosting our free tours of the Sphinxkwartier and Frontenpark. Each tour starts at 2:00 PM, where we explain the main points at the Belvédère information centre. After that, we start walking! Our guide will take you to new businesses such as Gedeelde Weelde and The Student Hotel. From there, we will continue towards Sphinxcour, which is where both the entrance and exit of Loods 5are located. You will not have any time for shopping though, as we have much more to see during our tour. We will proceed via the Bassin marina to have a look at Lumière film house and, when the renovation has sufficiently progressed, the Muziekgieterij (music venue).

The renovation of the Frontenpark will be completed by Strukton Civiel sometime during the summer of 2019. Depending on the progress at the time, we will walk through the Baron Dibbetspark towards the new underpass near Cabergerweg. During our tour, we will pass the fortifications that have been renovated in recent years to prevent further deterioration. If we are not yet able to continue via Frontenpark, then we will continue directly to the ‘back garden’ of the Sphinx Quarter, and we will head to Het Radium where the industrial and imposing Cokesfebrik and Gashouder buildings, definitely are worth a visit!

The Sphinxkwartier and Frontenpark tours are not suitable for individuals with limited mobility, whatever their age. Don’t forget to wear sturdy shoes or walking boots! English-language tours are also held on a first-come, first-served basis, so please make sure that you register in good time.
