Cogels Osylei, Antwerp

(440 reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Cogels Osylei and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Antwerp itinerary builder.
