The walk

Put yourself in the shoes of an emigrant and allow yourself to be led through Antwerp, to the departure point of the Red Star Line, the beginning of a better life.

Antwerp and the Red Star Line are inextricably linked together. Millions of emigrants arrived in Antwerp and then moved to other destinations, and that left a mark on the city. Traces of their presence are often inconspicuous, but they hide a huge story.
