Programme

Scavenger hunt

A fun adventure for all the family – explore the colours of the Marolles/ Marollen district (fully booked)

The Marolles/Marollen district, a historical Brussels neighbourhood much beloved by tourists, is a down-to-earth area full of contrasts, where immigration, too, has left its mark. Many social housing units have been built there over the years, their colours changing with the times. The diversity of its residents and its architecture, its flea market, its shop windows of every style, its wall advertisements both old and new, its comic-strip murals, its street art and its new wall-art tributes to Bruegel all make the Marolles/Marollen a very colourful place indeed. Lift your gaze from the grey cobblestones and come take in all the colours of the Marolles/Marollen with a fun treasure hunt for all the family!

In French only.

In cooperation with Once in Brussels.
