And now for something entirely different: the village of Lillo, one of the oldest districts of Antwerp, boasts an authentic fisherman's village and a well-preserved military fortress. Located on the banks of the river Schelde, north of the city, Lillo offers a good view of harbour activities as well as a quiet refuge from city business. This is 'polder' area: surrounded by dams, Lillo lies below water level. It is one of the villages still standing, after many others had to yield to harbour expansion. For those who want to glimpse the way of life of Antwerp's old harbour folk: the Polder museum offers a unique insight in the old days of the polder villages. Combine the museum with a refreshing walk on the dams, for when the weather is clear, stunning views are garantueed.
