Guided bicycle tour
Discover Evere, its 900 years of history and its iconic meeting places
The first part of this guided bicycle tour will take you from Evere’s origins to its current centre, passing through a series of meeting places such as the Picardie neighbourhood, La Fermette/Het Hoevetje, the Blauwen Bak spring, the former mental asylum, Place de la Paix/Vredeplein, the former tithe farm, the former town hall, the municipality’s history museum, the Brussels Museum of the Mill and Food, Notre-Dame/Onze-Lieve-Vrouw Church and the new town hall. The guide will bring the area’s history to life with stories, photos and old documents.
The second part will take you from the town hall to the Geuzenberg museum, the Oud Kappelleke, the old aerodrome, the Germinal neighbourhood, the old brickyards, the Chalet Rose, Brussels Cemetery, the gallows, Saint-Joseph/Sint-Jozef Church, the Tornooiveld district, the Solarium with its Olympic-size swimming pool and Tuinbouw Garden City, before returning to the town hall.
The two parts constitute a whole but you are required to book each part separately and you are free of course to limit your participation to just one of them.
