Special Event “Walking Brussels” – Art Nouveau Part I
Published on October 24, 2019
Leave the poles in the cloakroom and discover Brussels by foot! The Nordic Walking team is organizing a special event “Walking Brussels” on Sunday 3rd of November 2019, from 13.30 pm till +/- 16.30.
We discover the area where the roots of the Brussel’s Art Nouveau architecture are located. Both the very first but also the last Art Nouveau building is located in our city, therefore Brussels is also called the Capital of the Art Nouveau.
We make a walking tour in and around the triangle of Avenue Louise, Chaussée de Charleroi and Rue Defacq. We will discover the Tassel house, the Hannon hotel, the Ciamberlini residence, the Horta’s museum, the Solvay’s hotel and many more. Due to time constraints, we will only look at the houses from outside, but we will also show you pictures of the interior.
There will be a break in one of the many cafés in the area, subject to availability & time.
Meet at the corner of avenue Louise and rue Paul-Emile Janson, the walk will also end there. No children please.
Depending on the number of participants, we might split the group; in that case, one group would be guided in French and the other one in English.
If possible mention your intention to participate on Facebook, this would help us in the preparations. Spontaneous participation is also possible of course. Tour will be guided by Guy.
Come join us and get to know your city better!
