Feel like summer

Yep it is true, the number one summer hotspot in the centre of Berchem opens his doors for students to study. This former gas factory transformed in 2008 into a creative hotspot where theatre companies and other creative minds get together in their studio’s, the lounge or the green lawn outside. In summer, this becomes the beating heart of the Zomerfabriek: a summer bar with a wide program of concerts, performances, parties and more. Come on in, study in this urban jungle and enjoy the summer sun during your break.

Time for a break

Walk to the Dageraadplaats and enjoy your lunch at the little square over there. You can find multiple cafés and restaurants at this square (like Zeezicht or Aan het strand van Oostende) to take-away or – when it’s open again – enjoy drinks in the sun. If you walk a little further, you will reach the Draakplaats: the perfect spot to get a delicious pizza at Pizza Bellini. While you’re already walking, reach a little further and enjoy the amazing architecture at the Cogels-Osylei.

In need of a short coffebreak? Get yourself a sandwich or coffee at Bakersvilles & Sandwiches, or enjoy an amazing coffee at Frits Koffiebar.

Opening hours and take-out services change quickly in times of corona, so make sure to first check these locations’ social media. That way you won’t end up standing in front of a closed door!
