    History

    After 1531, Antwerp took the role as a trading center of Brugge. Since the market was dominated by Spanish and Portuguese. Beursplein in Antwerp was a rectangular square with four sides covered galleries, with regulations as in Bruges, as well as opening and closing times.

    The Bourse of Antwerp is perhaps designed to preview the Bruges Beursplein: a public place in the open air with some canopies where one could hide. It is built on top of an existing street intersection. In the plan, it originally had no roof.

    On the initiative of Thomas Gresham, the representative of the British Crown in Antwerp,in 1565 the London Stock Exchange opened on the model of this square. It was also “the bourse”, and to Queen Elizabeth after a visit on January 23, 1570 decided that the Royal Exchange had to be. The Stock Exchange of Rotterdam was established by decision of the town council “to ordain a bruised or too Plaetse, daer the coop heure meeting ordinary people were allowed to have been “dated January 30, 1595, Amsterdam followed 1611.

    The Explore


    With several successful sites done on our first tour of Europe, it was evident that an early start was going to be needed if we were to get this one in the bag. Arriving in the early hours of the morning, the streets were quiet, people were still sleeping and even the birds were silent. This was the ideal time to make our way inside.
