Antwerp's Art Nouveau Neighbourhood - Zurenbourg

Just a few minutes walk from Antwerp, Belgium's Berchem train station, is one of the city's most beautiful neighbourhoods, the Zurenbourg.

A handful of streets form the 'Golden Triangle' an area famous for its Art Nouveau and rival architecture. It's a hodge-podge of styles: Gothic Revival, Neo-Renaissance, Greek Revival, Neoclassical, and British Tudorbethan; striking in their differences.

A walk through the area is a lovely way to pass a few hours. The main streets of interest are: Cogels Osylei, Waterloostraat and Transvaalstraat.

Be sure to look up so you don't miss the stunning mosaic work that decorates many of the houses.
