Cogels Osylei, Antwerp
(4.7/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • When you like beautiful houses in art deco style, this is the place to be! This street and the other streets in the neighborhood are full of them. Nice bars and restaurants in the area.

  • 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.
