The climate of Antwerp (Belgium)
Antwerp is the city break destination in Belgium. Every year many
tourists come to this city on the Scheldt for a day, a weekend or a
longer period. Only a handful have discovered the beach near Antwerp
on the left bank of the Scheldt. St. Anna’s beach is a permanent sand
beach which is very cosy on summer days and offers unique views of the
port of Antwerp. There is often long lasting fog in the western part
of the port. Because of Antwerp’s situation on the Scheldt clouds and
rain are often stopped by the water in a manner of speaking and this
causes the weather to be much more pleasant in the center than in
areas dozens of kilometers to the north.
In December, January and March there is a reasonable chance of subzero
temperatures. However, most of the days are grey and reasonably wet.
Spring is very unstable. In April/May the weather may already be
pleasantly warm which makes it nice to sit in one of the many outdoor
cafés in the city. However, it can also be cold and heavy rainfall is
very much possible during this period. Most visitors are of the
opinion that Antwerp is at its best in June when there is pleasant
sunshine and the city is green because plants are in full bloom; it is
very nice to walk through the city in June. In July and August
temperatures may soar. Especially during the evening it is very
pleasant to stay in Antwerp. During autumn there may be an Indian
summer. However, chances of overcast skies, rain and fierce winds are
just as high. Together with December this is the most popular time for
a city trip to Antwerp.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
