For more than a decade, Doel (a subdivision of Beveren), is threatened with complete demolition due to the future enlargement of the harbour of Antwerp. The town has been mostly depopulated, leaving a canvas for street artists. A bit more information over the town can be found on the following page:

There is a "touristic season" open from April until September. Visiting Doel by car is the easiest way. Public transportation doesn’t service Doel very often. (For those brave enough to try, there is one bus, nr. 83 that can be taken at the end of the pre-metro line of tram nr. 3 from Antwerp Central, but not all busses go as far as Doel. More information on public transport options are available on
