The city of Antwerp is located in the northern, Dutch speaking part of Belgium and has approx. 500,000 inhabitants. The town is known as a big seaport (the third-largest in Europe) and as a diamond trading place.
The Antwerp Tramway runs on a network of over 70 kilometers which is carried out as a so-called "Premetro" on 15 kilometers length in the centre as well as under the river Schelde. This means that those sections are in a tunnel which can be upgraded on a full metro standard at a later time.
Operator of all Flemish tramways (also Gent as well as the Kusttram) is the transport company → De Lijn
