This street you have to visit if you like art deco and art nouveau houses. Have a look also in the other Streets around Cogels Osylei. And end your visit with a drink or a mail on the Draakplaats or the Dageraadplaats.

This area has always been known to be special but as time goes on it becomes more and more a desirable area to live in. A lovely town atmosphere but part of the city, very near to train stations, great outdoor eating places and yet quiet and peaceful to live in. The houses are grand, impressive and most are beautifully... More

This is a less traveled place in Antwerp. UYet, it is full of discoveries if you are into architecture. Combine your visit with a dinner at the Dagaraadsplaats. A perfect combo !

This street which at one time was threatened with demolition is worth a detour to have a look at façade after façade of beautiful Jugendstil/Art Nouveau and Belle Epoque and neoclassical architecture. Since 1984 the street is on the heritage list.

Living close to these streets always wondering why there's only exceptionally one or two people visiting this part of town for the eclectic houses (Art Nouvea, neo-renaissance and others). Really worthwile and easy to get to by bus or tram from the city centre. and free..

a nice strolling area- the architecture and related history and stories are not to be missed- get a Zoremburg booklet at the Antwerp Visitors Center- it makes the tour more guided with great stories- eat lunch or have coffee and dessert at a cafe nearby

It's not so far away from the Antwerp train station which is the number one attraction according to the reviews on Tripadvisor. Personally, I have visited both and I prefered the Cogels Osy neighborhood. It's probably because it's a little bit in the outskirts of Antwerp that why it's only in 5th position on Tripadvisor. But if it was located... More

An area out of the city center with lots of very special houses. There is a lot of traffic but in the side Streets of the Cogels Osylei it is much quieter

Without a doubt the most beautiful street of Antwerp. The street is a collection of impressive houses one more stunning than the other. If you like architecture it is a must see.

it's a gorgeous street with a lot of very special (old)houses. A bit noisy so i would suggest to visit the site on a Sunday or Holiday (less cars)
