Prepare for a star-studded culinary event in beautiful Antwerp this December. During this three-day event, expect not just one but two Michelin-starred restaurants, unique art and incredible architecture.

Your trip begins with your arrival at the 5-star Botanic Sanctuary Antwerp. A former monastery built in the 12th century, the hotel is located within the Botanical Garden, fusing history with the latest sustainable design and innovation. The retreat features various fine dining outlets, a ground-breaking spa and even a historic chapel that just beckons to be explored.

On the first evening, you will be dining at the one-star Michelin restaurant Fine Fleur headed by lauded chefs Jacob Jan Boerma and Thomas Diepersloot, both of whom have earned numerous Michelin stars throughout their careers and are now working together to create extraordinary taste sensations in an intimate fine-dining setting.

The following day you will join a guided tour of the KMSKA, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp. The KMSKA recently underwent a comprehensive restoration and expansion and now boasts a historic section and a new museum, both architecturally striking in their own right. After the tour, you will have some time to yourself, explore the area and grab lunch before the second part of the day begins with an Antwerp city tour.

Then, as the evening approaches, it is time to get ready for yet another culinary delight: dinner at Michelin-starred Restaurant FRANQ by executive chef Tim Meuleneire. Here, your senses will receive the royal treatment as French cuisine meets international flavours in inspiring surroundings.
