Cogels Osylei, Antwerp
(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Keep your camera ready when you stroll Cogels Osylei, a street full of architectural gems from the 19th and 20th centuries. The Beaux-Arts, Art Nouveau, and eclectic styles are well represented in the red brick and white facades. The narrow balconies and ornate window casings give the street a stately ambiance. Look up and fix your eyes on the widow's walks and upper terraces, where you may spot a statue of Humphrey Bogart smoking near an iron balustrade. Many of the buildings are residential and can only be viewed from outside. Take the number four tram and purchase a ticket from the driver to reach the street and save your energy for walking. Plan your visit to Cogels Osylei and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Antwerp itinerary builder.

  • If you're into architecture or if you like cute neighborhoods you should go there. I rented a bicycle and went there in a couple of hours. It was a bit tricky to find but loved it once I got there. 
  • Jaw dropping. Oh to live in a road like this. It's a must if you like art nouveau. Even if you don't a walk down this street will certainly give you an appreciation. Simply splendid. 
  • in France, there are "New Art" houses spreading, here it's a district we initially back 20 ° century and even trams put us in the beautiful atmosphere

  • Very high society area! Beautiful old architecture
  • Talking about architecture... it's a slightly insane street to walk though... living around the corner I used to enjoy late night strolls there. Definitely the prettiest street in Antwerp.
  • Beautiful street with some nice historical buildings. It is really expensive to buy a house here but we can always dream. 😊
  • Beautiful extra-ordinary street! Be sure to stay for drinks at dageraadplaats and draakplaats right at the end of the Cogels Osylei!
  • When visiting Antwerpen for its architecture, be sure to visit the Cogels Osylei. The houses here are extraordinary and very well preserved. Every house has it's own tale to tell.
