Noordpoort is located in a former electricity substation in Antwerpen Noord. The building was completely renovated in 2018 but still shows its industrial character. It was used as a coworking space for a while, but since October 2020, WISPER has been using this location as a permanent location for our courses.


Noordpoort is located at the end of Dambruggestraat (at no. 336), near Park Spoor Noord.

  • on foot: it takes 15 minutes on foot from Antwerp Central Station
  • by bicycle: there are 3 Velostations in the area (118 Dambrugge, 126 Lange Dijk, 123 Park Spoor Noord). You can also rent a Bluebike at Antwerp Central Station.
  • public transport: you can take the bus at Rooseveltplaats or the metro at Astridplein (central station). Then get off at the Ellermanstraat stop.
  • by car: you have to pay for parking everywhere in the area. The nearest indoor parking can be found on Sint-Jansplein.

The first lesson you will be welcomed at the entrance of the building. We will then show you the way to the classroom. If you follow a workshop during the day, you can have lunch nearby or eat your packed lunch in the foyer on the ground floor. Unfortunately, the rooms are not wheelchair accessible yet. Some courses take place on the first floor, and we don't have an elevator.

Organizing this new site according to the needs and questions of all our teachers and students is a process that will probably take a few months before it is completely finished. If you notice facilities in the Noordpoort that are missing or need to be improved, while giving or following a course, please let us know by emailing

Thanks to your feedback, we really make this new place 100% WISPER!
