Detailed description of the options
Getting around Antwerp > Shared bikes from Blue-bike
 
Our venues are spread around the city. Public transport connections to and between these locations are often difficult. Walking is possible but will take a lot of time. Specifically Friday to reach the pool on the left bank of the Schelde it is easiest reached by bike: you can make use of the ferries or pedestrian(cyclist)tunnel to cross the river. We therefore recommend you use shared bikes (Blue Bike, Donkey Republic or Velo) or electric scooters (Bird, Poppy, Circ).
 
To make things easy for you you can rent a bike at the exclusive price of €10,30 for the entire weekend. We made a deal with Blue-bike (the Belgium shared bike scheme that has bikes present at over a 100 transport hubs around the country). You can pick-up and drop-off the bike at one of the main train stations (Antwerpen Centraal, -Berchem and -Zuid) at any time of the day with the vouchercode we will send you. Once picked up, you can keep the bike for the weekend without having to dock it after each ride. Be aware that you are responsible for keeping the bike in good shape, lock it properly each time and return it on Sunday June 16th by the latest, to the same location as where you picked it up. If not, you will have to pay a surcharge. The possible charges are stated here. 
 
Hotel Proposal: Radisson Berchem
This hotel is perfectly located for an arrival by train (and car), is next to the rental location of Blue-bike at Berchem station and close to all venues on Saturday. 
 
We have arranged a reduced fixed price for a two person room including breakfast at a rate of EUR145.00 per night for two people (or  EUR72.50 p.p.p.n.). 
 
Rather have a room on your own? That makes EUR130.00 per night.
 
Hosted Housing
Some of the Antwerp members have some spare space available. Places are limited to approximately 8 beds/matrasses/couches. Therefore, we would like to keep these reserved for the people who need this most. Please keep this in mind when opting in for hosted housing. 
 
Cultural activities
We are considering organizing a cultural activity on Saturday and want to see if there is sufficient interest. There are two options (see below). The indicative price for each option is EUR35 per person.
 
- a guided queer tour of Antwerp. Think of a 2 hr tour through the city center, visiting queer highlights with a certified city guide.
- a guided queer tour of the KMSKA (Antwerp Museum of Fine Arts). Think of a 1.5hr guided tour of the museum during which you will look at classical art through a queer lens. The price includes a ticket to the museum, so you can explore freely after the guided tour if you want.
 
Brunch
 
We are considering organizing a communal brunch on Saturday or Sunday at around 11 AM and want to see if there is sufficient interest. The indicative price for brunch is EUR35.
