Description

This fortress was built after 843 on the banks of the Scheldt to defend the new frontier defined by the Verdun Treaty. Used as a prison from the early 14C, it was then extended around 1520, under Charles V, and restored in the 19C and 20C. A statue of Antwerp's legendary Lange Wapper stands in front of Het Steen.
