Could a country as vibrant as the Congo be lurking in the architectural recesses of Brussels? Prepare to be surprised! You’ll discover bananas and oranges cascading down the walls of historic buildings in the city centre, colourful, shimmering frescoes, a Norwegian-Congolese chalet, a monumental bronze statue from Katanga and other precious woodwork from the tropics. So get on your bike and join us as we enter Brussels’ colonial history through the back door of its architectural details!

In cooperation with Once in Brussels.
