    Overall Antwerp Travel Experience by Season

    Spring (March through May)

    Humidity and temperatures combine to make this season feel moderately cold. Highs range from 48.6°F (9.2°C) and 34.9°F (1.6°C) with warmer temperatures in the later months. Spring is fairly slow for tourism, which makes it a good time for those looking for deals.

    Summer (June through August)

    The middle-year months have slightly cold weather with high temperatures that are comfortable. June – August is busy season for tourism in Antwerp, so lodging and other accommodations may cost slightly more.

    Fall (September through November)

    Fall daily highs range from 51.1°F (10.6°C) and 34.5°F (1.4°C), which will feel chilly given the humidity and wind. Tourism is the slowest during these months due to the weather, so hotels may be lower priced.

    Winter (December through February)

    Weather is far too cold this time of year in Antwerp to be enjoyable for warm weather travelers. The average high during this season is between 34.5°F (1.4°C) and 31.1°F (-0.5°C). These times of year are the busiest with tourists.
