A view into the past of Antwerp
Aug 2019
The perfectly preserved Jugendstil and Art Deco houses in this street date from 1881 - 1914. Although it's not near the city center, it's certainly worthwhile to take a tram or to walk there if you want to take home some beautiful memories (and pictures) of Antwerp in one of it's many glory periods.
Just a little over 100 years ago, this part of the city was still farmland; part of the Zurenborg estate of Baron Cogels-Osy. It used to be the most luxurious residential area for the rich in Antwerp.

Incredible how a few streets can have some many treasures on display. Every house tries to be prettier as the one next door. Beautiful details to be discovered

An amazing street
Sep 2019
The buildings on this street are amazing. Worth the time to get to the street and to walk both sides. Be sure to bring a camera. Tram #11 (€3 for a single ride; tickets can be purchased on the tram) from the old city and the central train station in the direction of Berchem will take you on and then past Cogels Osylei, so you will have to walk back from where the tram has just passed. The tram runs about every 15 minutes during the da

Hidden Gem in Antwerp
Sep 2019
Definitely worth the long walk from the Grote Markt in the rain. It was absolutely stunning to see the older, well-preserved buildings with wildly different architecture throughout the neighborhood. It is a great escape from the busy city, touristy areas, and many museums. A must-see in Antwerp

Beautiful gem in Antwerp
Oct 2018
Cogels-Osylei (or Cogels-Osy Lei) is one of the main streets in the Zurenborg quarter, an area in south-east Antwerp largely developed between 1894 and 1906 that features a high concentration of townhouses in Art Nouveau and other fin-de-siècle styles. This is a spectacular part of Antwerp, very picturesque if you like strolling in a quarter full of aristocratic houses. Other than Cogels-Osylei (or Cogels-Osy Lei) the main streets are Transvaalstraat and Waterloostraat.
