CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Excursions

During CODART 24 in Antwerp we offer a wide variety of excursions on all congress days. You can read more information about the excursions below or by following the links in the sidebar. This will help you to make your choice on the registration form.

Sunday

On Sunday 12 March we have scheduled an optional excursion in the afternoon to ‘Het Steen’ in Elewijt. From 1631 until 1635 this castle was the country house of Peter Paul Rubens, and from 1635 his primary residence until his death in 1640. Both the castle and its rural surroundings were of great inspiration to Rubens and his art. More information about the excursion and a full program will follow soon.

Monday and Tuesday

We offer a program of excursions and study visits on Monday as well as on Tuesday afternoon. Three excursions will take place at the KMSKA, and others will take you to different locations in and around Antwerp. The in-depth study visits at the KMSKA will focus on specific topics and do not include a guided tour through the whole museum. We recommend you to visit the museum at your own leisure before or after the conference. Please find more information on the excursion pages for Monday and Tuesday.

Optional program on Wednesday

On Wednesday 15 March we offer two optional full-day excursions. One will take you to Ghent, where you will visit the Ghent Altarpiece in St. Bavo’s new visitor center, and the Theodoor Rombouts exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK). Participants of the other excursion will explore the churches of Zoutleeuw and Geel and focus on their in situ treasures. For these optional visits we charge a separate fee. Both excursions include entrance fees, guided tours, coffee breaks, and lunch. More information can be found on the excursion pages for Wednesday.
