Enjoy a walk in an area with renovated houses in eclectic, art nouveau, jugendstil, neo classism styles, all in one street, just around the corner at the train station 'antwerpen-berchem'

This is the main residential street of the Zurenborg district of Antwerp. Enormous art nouveau houses, all with different façades. Interested in buying one? Well, if you have to ask its price, then you can't afford it. Parking on the street is possible, and I would recommend doing that for visits to one of the many restaurants 5 to 10... More

I would recommend everybody who wants to visit this neighbourhood, to go with a professional guide. I did it last februari and the background information makes it so mic more interesting than just looking at the beautifull housed.

I walked through this very beautiful, probably the most beautiful street of Antwerp. It was just nearby Mabuhay bed and breakfast, where Ive slept, and it was always nice to do a little walk in this street before sleeping.

This is really something worth taking the time for. I was recommended this by some locals and I am so happy we went. It is like walking into a different era. The buildings are just beautiful. If you love architecture or history don't hesitate, just do it. Only downside was the fact that it was so cold out...

This part of the Zurenborg neighborhood has the most beautiful architecture. It's actually not only Cogels - Osy lei, but also the adjacent streets.

This was one of the highlights of our time in Antwerp. Just to walk down this street and around the immediate area was fabulous. We loved the different architecture of each magnificent house, and could imagine them in their heyday. Well maintained. Stopped at the Wattman Cafe at the end of the street for lunch - that was great too... More

I love Art Nouveau architecture, and seek it out in Nancy (the best!), Barcelona, Brussels, Paris, etc. I don't know why, but it just makes me happy to look at. This little neighborhood has some very nice examples. Just take the tram and walk around!
