Place type: authentic street
Vlaaikensgang, 2000 Antwerpen

The Vlaeykensgang with cobblestone paths dates from the year 1591 and consists of 11 authentic back houses. The name is inspired by a pie and waffle house that was established here early. You literally imagine yourself in the Middle Ages when you walk through here. Shoemakers lived in these narrow streets who had to sound the alarm bell of the Cathedral of Our Lady a little further away.It may sound idyllic to live here, but the alley was home to the city's poorest people. People lived here with large families in much too small spaces. Centuries ago, Antwerp consisted of many such alleys, but at the end of the 19th century many of these places were demolished. The Vlaeykensgang survived thanks to an antique dealer who bought the place and had it restored.
