Why Zuiderzin?  

Zuiderzin: Simply, the hip lively neighborhood along the Scheldt. Close to the center but still a completely different character than that of the tourist attractions. Quieter yet lively, more alternative, popular, in short a very lovely neighborhood to stay in. Officially, the neighborhood in which Zuiderzin is located is called: the Sint-Andrieskwartier, formerly, the Parish of Misery. This is because for centuries it was the poorest district of Antwerp in which popular figures housed themselves, life along the stream took place here. But also the fathers Augustinians who came to draw their water at our neighboring house, no. 9 and who preached through the underground cellars of the houses in the street, to the Cathedral of Our Lady. But the misery has given way to fashionable boutiques, antique dealers and squares to enjoy. In short, a very eventful history.

Zuiderzin, A Southern Sense, Southern Phrases, the literary festival of the Word, in which lectures, performances and music by word artists were performed. Although “Zuiderzinnen” gave his last acte de présence in 2013, for our Zuiderzin it only started here. Perhaps this festival can flow a bit, this festival as a source of inspiration for the bookcase on the first floor of which the books will change hands.

Interpret in your own way, at least it sounds to us sentences- stimulating … . And you can make that happen by flattering yourself on one of the most beautiful terraces, by buying that special piece of clothing, designed by one of the Antwerp 6, by finding that esoteric book at the many book markets, by visiting one of the many museums, such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Letterenhuis (if you want to see conscience’s handwriting with your own eyes), the photography or fashion museum and of course the MAS and the Red Star Line museum, or just by a meeting, all around the corner. In any case, make sure that your stay is titillating, do not let the name be stolen … .
