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.

More climate information
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 information for each month of the year:
