A really nice neighborhood with cosy houses. A lot of young families live here and there are a lot of small restaurants. The central place of Zurenborg is where all the people gather. On thursday there is a market

Zurenborg is a district in Antwerp close to the ring. The houses are great to look at and remind us of the splendor of days gone by. If you have time and the weather is ok, you should go and look.

The Cogels Osy lei makes part of Zurenborg district but it's just outside. The zurenborg area is just ok. Look at my review on Cogels Osy lei which is one minute away in the South. It's the 5th thing to see in Antwerp.

Arrived here and first problem we encountered was the.number of the building. Booking.com had no number for the address. The actual building has no name.on it or any identifying signs. Anyway it's number 5 and right next to a small Italian street resteraunt. Looks lovely.... we were in room 5. Which was on the top floor. 60 steps up. You... More

Zurenborg may be off the beaten trail when it comes to Antwerp's attractions, but the neighbourhood deserves a few hours of one's morning or afternoon to leisurely stroll about, admiring the lovely facades of its buildings in various styles, especially in Art Nouveau but also Neo-Classical, Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance, and of course stop at one of the many cafes, bars...

Stumbled into this area rather by accident but oh my god! If you like Art Nouveau architecture you'll simply love this place!

It is not very large area but packed with art nouveau (and not only) houses. Very well preserved. For best pictures go in winter (plus minus a month) - when trees are with no leaves. Funny spot where Guldenvliesstraat meets Transvaalstraat near the rail road wall - a herb and vegetable garden by locals. I saw similar in the richest... More

Not spectacular as the main train station or the cathedral, but a must-see for architecture lovers. When the city grew in the late 19th century, there was a competition in which architects would design individual houses of a new development. Hence, this neighboorhood gives a unique view on the Art Nouveau movement of the time. Stroll around in the streets,... More

Find different styles of architecture in an area of a square mile. Mostly build around 1900 and well maintained.
