Tongeren is not really the place for a long, lazy lie-in on a Sunday morning. At 7 am Belgium?s oldest city starts transforming into an enormous, almost medieval, market place. Around 40 prestigious antique shops and 350 specialist stall holders display centuries-old antiques, second-hand, design, vintage and rare collector?s items. Thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to this weekly top antiques event. The lively atmosphere and historical setting is legendary.
Tip: early birds get the most interesting treasures. You can also call or email the antique shops located around the market on weekdays for expert advice. All contact details are listed in the Antiques Brochure. If you would like more information, you can either pick up a free antiques brochure, which includes a map, hotspots and antique shops from Tourism Tongeren or download it below.
