Cogels Osylei, Antwerp

4.9
#4 of 12 in Historic Sites in Antwerp
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you like to admire buildings from the ' Belle epoque ', you've come to the right place. Among other wonderful examples of jugendstil, art nouveau, eclectic style and neo-classicism there are on this street. It is also accessible by tram passing stations near Berchem 11.4 and 9. So if you go to Antwerp by train, you can then further by tram ride to the Centre of Antwerp. At the end of the slate there are also some fantastic local restaurants and the Dageraadplaats with its many outdoor cafes is but a short 5-minute walk away. A must for those who want to gain some culture first, then a drink or tasty lunch or dinner. Everything is nearby.
