Guided bicycle tour

All the colours of Brussels façades

Throughout history, architects have used colour – or, indeed, the lack of it – to create attractive façades for their buildings. As you cycle through the streets of Brussels, you will learn all about the materials and methods used to ornament house façades, from wrought iron, polychrome bricks and cut stone to decorative techniques like sgraffito or mosaic. A festival of colour awaits – just look up and enjoy the show!

In cooperation with Pro Velo.
