A colourful encyclopedia of Art Nouveau
The Nord-Est/Noord-Oost neighbourhood of Brussels, including locations like Square Marie-Louise/Maria-Louizasquare, Avenue Palmerston/Palmerstonlaan, Square Ambiorix/Ambiorixsquare and Square Marguerite/Margaretasquare, is a veritable encyclopedia of Art Nouveau!
This walking tour will take in not only buildings designed by Art Nouveau pioneer Victor Horta – including the undisputed masterpiece that is Hôtel Van Eetvelde – but also creations by the second generation of Art Nouveau architects, such as Paul Hamesse, Georges Hobé, Paul Saintenoy, Gustave Strauven, Victor Taelemans and Armand Van Waesberghe. In addition, you will have the chance to admire a number of façades decorated with elegant sgraffito panels and brilliantly coloured mosaics.
