Cogels Osylei, Antwerp

4.9
#4 of 12 in Historic Sites in Antwerp
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.

    This street is a real architectural museum, a must for lovers of art nouveau; We come here settled over, and sometimes forget that people from all over the world come here specifically to watch. It is also very beautiful and totally worth it. There are nice bars and restaurants nearby, and the street is located across from the train station of Berchem. There is also a lot of trams and buses stop.

    If you liked to be amazed and surprised, browse through this avenue located at two steps of the BERCHEM station. The architecture of the houses and villas is new art or art deco but eclectic style found nowhere else. One more thing for which we can be proud to see listed in the UNESCO heritage!
