Incredibly beautiful street of Art Deco and Art Nouveau homes with beautiful gardens--right out of a movie set. A little out of the city center but go and then nearby are some lovely cafes.

This is on of the largest collections of notable hoses in a compact area that I have seen. You must walk off of the main to surrounding streets. Don't miss summer fall winter spring houses one block southwest of main intersection. Note also some good buildings in sud.

In my township, if you are a visitor, don't miss this jewel. Take a stroll and just watch the beautiful houses. ( just if you like to watch architecture )

Cogels Osylei is a street with one stunning home and building after another and all done in the Art Nouveau style. It's not an overly long street to walk down, if you're really stopping to look at each and every building it would probably take about an hour or more but it is located right by a tram stop so...

One building being nicer than the other, except for one hyper-modern house, which is unclear how the owners got a building permit for it, in a street which contains just monuments... Close (2 mins walking) to the Berchem Station in Antwerp.

Beautifull eclectic architecture from around 1900 where the architects combined all types of styles in the buildings. When you like architecture, this street is a must see.

The Cogels Osylei is a very special street in the Antwerp Zurenborg quarter. All the houses, most of them being real beauties, are built in the "Art Nouveau" stile. As all of them are however privately owned, only on special occasions some of them are open to the public.

Some foreign people who come to my house and visit the neighborhood tell me that it looks like Disneyland! It is truly one of the most beautiful streets of Antwerp with loads of busses and tourists taking pictures. It's an honour to preserve this monument for future generations

Almost all buildings in this street - that is very close to Antwer-Berchem train station, date from the Art Nouveau period. some (but certainly not all) are quite impressive constructs. There are similar houses in the streets nearby
