LOCATION

antwerp – the place to play Kubb

Antwerp is the hotspot for Belgian Kubb. It’s not only the capital of the province with the same name, it’s also the largest city in Belgium. In the past years, two Belgian championships have already been organized in this beautiful city and with only 30 minutes travel time, it is easily accessible by public transport from Brussels National airport. Antwerp also has its own airport but unfortunately does not have as many connections as Brussels airport.

The tournament will take place at the sports ground in the “Kastanjedreef” which lies directly next to the border of the river “Schelde”, the famous citybeach “Sint-Anneke” and public swimming pools. Right next to the playing fields is camping available with all the necessary facilities such as toilets and showers. The closeness to the city centre allows an uncomplicated and flexible travel inside the city.

Adress playing field: Kastanjedreef, 2050 Antwerp

Outside the tournament area is a parking area, which allows a parking time of 7 days in a row (so you could leave your car or camper there for the whole weekend).
