Walk. See. Feel the Art Nouveau in practically every house. This area of Antwerp dates from around the year 1900. Stunning architecture, with a purpose: there is coherence, a plan behind. It was also only a rather limited group of architects that created this brilliantly perserved beauty. I could only find one modern house (pretty in fact, even in that... More

Found the route in one of our Guide books, but our host at our B&B also recommended it. Easy to get to by tram, allow 45 minutes to an hour just because you will take so many pictures. The intersection with the Four Seasons on each corner is not to be missed!

Zurenborg Antwerp is the finest art nouveau suburb in the world better than Brussels, Vienna or Barcelona. The main street Cogels Osylei is to die for but all the other streets are fantastic too; there is only one modern house and that is interesting too. In addition the local airport is nearby and one of the two main railway, bus... More

Same area as Cogels-Osylei. See there for my local-born appreciation. Worth a visit, walk amidst these preserved and now protected houses!

If you love lovely old houses, the feeling of a village in a city the Zurenborg area is definitely one you would love to stroll in. Just follow your nose, walking from one street into another and enjoy the neighborhood: many young families with children have found their way here over the last 15 years, to hipsters this is the...

I normally pass by this area in the car, but to appreciate it it's better first hand - it's within walking distance of the more touristy part of the city. There are architectural works of art aplenty here, so make sure you have lots of space on your camera. Also the restaurants in the area have a very good reputation,... More
