“Beautiful street”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This street nearby the train station of Berchem has got magnificent houses!

If you like big, old houses, it's a good idea to walk through this street.

“lavish buildings for the elite”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you love architecture this is the site not to miss in Antwerp.
Best place is to start at erchem train station but also other starting points are suggested online.

“A fairytale street”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

A not very long street where almost every building is a work of art.The houses look like they are made by ginger bread.At one of its ends is Antwerpen Berchem-train station and terminus station for many buses and trams.You can take tram line 9 to Groeneplaats,the center of the old town.

“another diamond”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Another example of a place politicians and real estate developers wanted to destroy ! now thousands of tourists flock to admire it! This is the real thing: art nouveau and ecclestial style. A marvel. The train station at the end was in fact destroyed and replaced by a example of stalinistic architecture.

“happy days”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

very nicely restored street, close to the railway station at Antwerp Berchem, breathes the grandure of the old days, walking through is almost like a visit to the museum.
