The Sint-Annatunnel or Pedestrian tunnel, as Anwerpians call it, runs under the river Scheldt. It connects the left and the right side of Antwerp (Belgium). Before this tunnel was inaugurated in 1933 it was very hard to cross this wide river. The Antwerpian master architect Emiel Van Averbeke designed the entrance buildings to this passage for bikers and pedestrians in Art Deco style. Today it is a well-preserved monument with four original wooden escalators, which was a real novelty for that time.
The tunnel is an architectural masterpiece, a symbol for connection place, people.
