Walking tour

Colour beneath the streets of Brussels

Millions of passengers crowd into the Brussels metro system every week, rushing through the stations as they go on their way. Yet very few of them stop to admire the underground art gallery around them. While the artworks speak for themselves, they sometimes acquire an additional layer of meaning through their interaction with their surroundings. A vast array of paintings, sculptures, photos and stained-glass creations by Belgian artists adorn the platforms and passageways of the metro system, bringing the space to life with their diverse shapes and vibrant colours. But these artworks are not the only thing that make their mark on the atmosphere of the metro system and shape the experiences of all those who pass through it: the stations’ colour schemes and architecture also play a part. Plunge into a world of colour beneath the streets of Brussels!

In Dutch only.
