nice but noisy

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)

A walk around the area of Cogels Osylei will introduce you to the architectural styles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries

This is one of the most beautiful streets in Antwerp. The architects have done a good job decades ago. I like to go around and look at the different houses. Just to dream about which one would once become mine

This is a small and quiet neighborhood with really pretty houses situated in it. Apparently these houses have great architectural value but for a normal person, it is a walk with an enjoyable view.

Quiet little neighborhood, really pretty houses and a few great restaurants. Would recommend coming to see to get away from the busy antwerp central. Spent an hour ++ here strolling and having lunch

Just one of many beautiful and intersting catle like mansions in an ordinary street.. When you love architecture, you need to see this street and the streets around it. La belle epoque, Jugend stiehl, Art deco, eclectic style, end of the 19th, beginning of the 20th century. A feest for the eyes... Not to be missed when you arrive in... More

Got a tram 11 to station - walked the small area of fascinating architecture - the houses are so different - mainly stunningly beautiful with roses around doors and blossom everywhere. It is like a living working museum of architecture - definitely worth a trip to see and it's free!
