OLD BERCHEM - Antwerp This is the part of Berchem that lies just inside the city's ring road, close to major access roads and at the same time a stone's throw from the beautiful old center. In addition, this residential area features beautiful homes built at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Oud-Berchem can be recognized by the elegant stately mansions, beautiful belle-époque houses that used to belong to the officers and the colorful houses that can be found in picturesque hidden alleys. This neighborhood has its own park, namely the Koning Albertpark. Oud-Berchem is very accessible because of the Berchem train station and the Antwerp Ring.
