Antwerp, Belgium

Two Fort Run: Fort 5 and Fort 4

Google Street View

Here’s a fun route in southeastern Antwerp: a 10k run around two forts! We recommend taking the train from the Central Station in Antwerp to Mortsel-Oude God, a mere eight minutes that lands you at the steps of Fort 4. Starting at the train station, do the ~3 km loop around the Fort 4 Park, on paths around moats and the old fort. Returning to the train station, head over to Fort 5,¬† which is 1.5 km using the N10 road west briefly, then LEFT on Edegemsestraat, then RIGHT on Adrien de Gerlachestraat. Enjoy a 2.5 km loop around the perimeter and paths of the Fort 5 park¬† [Option: an extra ~1 km south of the fort on paths around Domein Hof ter Linden park.]. Exit at the north end, using Fort V-straat to cross the R11, and then take gravel path paralleling the R11 for 1.5 km back to the start.
