The smallest square of Antwerp

The "Pottenbrug" square only counts one house with four house numbers. That makes the square one of the smallest ones in Belgium and probably one of the smallest in the world. Small but mighty, so the saying goes. And this is certainly true for this square.

Some trees, some benches and a statue of Paul Van Ostaijen, a famous Flemish poet fill the tiny place and bring the square in a poetic mood.



Seven years ago the building was renovated. The contractor also rebuild the square. It is nice to see how many people use the square to pause the office or the university under the watchful eye of the poet. The "Pottenbrug" square lies on the border of the center of Antwerp and the student area. 


You can find it on this Address: Minderbroedersrui 38, Antwerp.
