Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • This is an open air museum. You see different houses, different styles, sometimes bold, sometimes appropriate within a picture, but each is a must. Blessed just. You don't know where you first have to look for. Perfectly.

  • Definitely one of the most beautiful streets of Antwerp, but be sure also the adjacent streets. The Transvaalstraat is perhaps even more beautiful.

  • Beautiful street with some nice historical buildings. It is really expensive to buy a house here but we can always dream. 😊
  • 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.
  • Very nice street with a lot of historic houses
  • Nice Street, with nice houses
