this street in Berchem, Antwerp, is a row of very extravagant style of houses of the 19th century, built for the upper class. You just have to walk through.

This is the best street to live in Antwerp. You see very beautifully decorated houses, but it is unpossible to find a place to park your car (as a tourist).

If you appreciate architecture, this is a MUST see. The street and surrounding side streets are a thrill to behold. What a concentration of special architecture. And one idiot who tore one down to build an eyesore.

The perfectly preserved Jugentstil and Art Deco houses in this street dat from 1881 - 1914. Although it's not near the city centre, it's certainly worthwhile to take a tram or to walk there if you want to take home some beautiful memories (and pictures)...More

Walking through the Cogels-Osylei is a trip down the art nouveau era. Some of the finest houses in Antwerp, and close to the always lively Zurenborg.

A neighborhood of eclectic art deco architecture. Great way to spend a couple of hours doing nothing ... just stroll and imagine a different time. Thanks a bit of time to walk to from the old center. You may want to take public transportation or...More
