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
