You have to walk here and look around than you see that in the past this was the home of very rich people.

From the Historic Center, take the #4 tram across town to Berchem rail and bus station; you'll know you're there by the open air bus station on the right. It's 2 euros for a one-hour fare-card; buy it from the driver. The tram ride takes 10 minutes bad the neighborhood in question is across the street (left of the tram... More

Travelers to Antwerp interested in architecture will find this an amazing experience. You won't find another street like this on earth. This street is unique in its kind.

when in Antwerp, go to an area called "Zurenborg". Tram 11 takes you to it. Get off the stop before Berchem Station and just walk around in whatever street and let your eyes feast upon the art deco façades. DO IT!

We did a special walk to see these buildings and were glad to do so. It only takes a few minutes to walk from one end of the street to the other, but all the houses are different, and most of them are delightful. The street is about 25 minutes' walk from the Central Station, and is served by public... More

This is one of the most beautiful set of streets that you will ever see. To explore the place you have to ditch the rides and actually trust your walking power to get through these cobbled streets. Tram option is also available but in my opinion preferring to use that would be a complete waste of time because you will... More

This is a very interesting area to visit. Be prepared to walk along Cogels Osylei Street - this is not a drive-by tour. Once onto Cogels Osylei, make sure that you explore some of the side streets associated with it as there are some hidden gems along there too. The area has town houses intermingled with large mansions making for... More

Cogels Osylei is one of the most beautiful Streets I know. You'll best traverse it by foot, just to be able to fully explore the beauty of the 10-15 architectural wonders of the Jugendstil era that can be enjoyed here. If you're more pressed for time, take the tram ride with line 11 throughout the street, but - at least... More
