A wonderful free attraction definitely worth your time. This street is architecturally stunning. Don't forget in the next street (Pretoriastraat) is another free site to see, amazing graffiti about a mile long. Art - not pointless scribble.

In the 1970's many of these Art Deco/Art Nouveau monuments would've been destroyed hadn't artists, writers and architects bought them cheaply, and renovated them. Now, the area is one of the most expansive residential quarters of Antwerp. Talk about gentrification! Anyway, luckily the Cogels Osylei...More

A walk through a neighborhood of another time. Every stone has a past; every house has a story. Fascinating.
