Cogels Osylei, Antwerp

4.9
#4 of 13 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.

  • I got a feeling that I walked in the 15th century. The building are very beautiful, very artistic. The neighbourhood was quiet and I was really enjoying my walk there  more »
  • So, Yes, the street is very pretty and worth the drive... but after reading as much literature on the subject, I thought sincerely be more impressed by the place that I've been :)

  • If you are in Antwerp and you're a lover of architecture then go to the Campbell Osyslei, not normally what you see in architectural gems, most in Art Nouveau style, all facades are beautifully but note the corner houses, spring summer winter , you don't know what you see, please pay attention to the fine details, it seems you hundred years back in time, all the houses here are monuments, the whole street is preserved and that is extremely rare
