Wim ROBBERECHTS©urban.brussels

Brussels is full of monuments, museums, buildings and symbols evoking Belgium’s colonial past. That past is particularly evident in its public space, with numerous street names and monuments honouring people, places and events linked to the history of Belgium’s former colony, the Congo. But who are these people and what is their story? From the city centre to Forest/Vorst, via Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek and Parc du Cinquantenaire/Jubelpark, take a panoramic bus tour through Belgium’s colonial past and the legacy it has left behind.

In cooperation with Brussels Chatterguides.
