Brussels 1900 - Art Nouveau

Brussels 1900 - Art Nouveau



This guided tour examines the most innovative style in Brussels' architectural history: Art Nouveau, which originated in the designs of Victor Horta at the end of the nineteenth century. Now recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites, Horta's buildings inspired other architects to develop the style as new suburbs were built around the city. The tour visits several districts: the city centre, the avenue Louis Bertrand in Schaerbeek, the Squares district in Etterbeek, the Ixelles ponds, the avenue Louise and Saint-Gilles.


The tour includes visits to the interiors of some Art Nouveau buildings, some of which are not open to the public. The interiors visited include either Victor Horta's Van Eetvelde house (two Saturdays per month) or Jules Brunfaut's Hannon house (with details by Louis Gallé); Schaerbeek's School No.1 by Henri Jacobs or Victor Horta's primary school in the rue St.-Ghislain; the former Waucquez department store by Victor Horta. The choice of interior visits for each tour is subject to availability.
