Since parking in the city center of Antwerp is expensive, there is an option to drop off your stuff at the monastery first, and then drive to the parking lot of the restaurant 'Paesano', Limbastraat 1, 2030 Antwerpen. Your can park free there. To get back to the monastery, you can either walk (quite far: 2.1km = 26 minutes), or take public transport. It's still quite a long walk to and from the stops, unfortunalely. you can check the options for public transport here: www.delijn.be.
DO YOU HAVE AN OLDER CAR? BE CAREFUL, the monastery is situated in the 'Low Emission Zone' in Antwerp. Check www.slimnaarantwerpen.be/en/lez to know if you have to pay for a daypass or not...
If you stay just one day in the monastery, and your car is allowd in the Low Emission Zone, it might be a better solution to park your car on a paying parking lot, e.g. Parking Grote Markt which is 6 min. walking from the monastery.
