This is an area in Antwerp with is known for its beautiful architecture. the area in itself is not big, you can get around in 30-60 min but it is worth having breakfast, lunch or dinner in the area. The most famous street 'Cogels Osylei' is only part of the area, other streets are equally beautiful. Unfortunately public transportation (busses... More

The Cogelsosylei is a must see for those who are interested in spectacular architecture. Just next to the Durness train station and must be done on foot. See the splendor of individual home owner expression of their personalities through the unique designs of each building from the turn of the 19th to 20th century.

Kensington Gardens is what comes to mind when walking through this, and two adjacent streets...so remarkable and unique that one wonders : "where did this come from"? Beautiful houses!

This is one of the largest collections of Art Nouveau houses I know. Also check out the surrounding streets. On one intersection in a parallel street, you'll find four opposing houses that represent the four seasons. At the end of the street there's a square that has some good bistros. You can easily reach this by train as it is... More

Zurenborg is a beautiful historic neighbourhood of Antwerp that you absolutely can't miss if you visit the region. It is a living museum of the most beautiful Art Nouveau homes you can find in the World. Unfortunately the City doesn't pay the necessary attention to this unique site. Excessive traffic, in particular buses and tramways create strong vibrations, loud noise,... More

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 !
