"Art Nouveau in Belgium" Berchem by Luchonda

Berchem Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 29 photos

On my way to a pre-meeting

In October 2007 i will travel to Libya, a pre-meeting was planned in Berchem with the guide and the other group members.
I took this occassion to visit the famous "Zurenborg District"
- The Cogels-Osylei
- Transvaalstraat
- Waterloostraat

House Zonnebloem

An excellent example of Art Nouveau/Jugendstil
Reminds me at Spain - reminds me at Barcelona - reminds me at Gaudi

Cogels-Osylei

The central place with four main buildings, called white houses, one at each edge and well maintained

    Luc, I'm sorry to be late with happy birthday wishes for you but my wife and I have been on the road covering 4000-km in the past 4 days! Very interesting info here on how different countries viewed this 'new' architectural form!

    So many names for this kind of architecture! Did you have your pre-meeting in one of these buildings? Have a great time in Libya in October!
