Family scavenger hunt

Memories in enamel and stone

© E-Guides

If we take the trouble to read them, our street names and commemorative monuments tell us a lot about historical facts and individuals involved in colonial propaganda. In this fun family activity, explorers young and old will embark on a semi-guided scavenger hunt between Avenue Adolphe Buyl/Adolphe Buyllaan and Avenue Louise/Louizalaan to seek out many traces of the colonial period, including enamel plaques and monuments. Roadbook in hand and assisted by two guides stationed along the route, you’ll uncover a chapter of Belgian history at your own pace while making your way around various parts of the city: Solbosch/Solbos, Abbaye de la Cambre/Abdij Ter Kameren, Jardin du Roi/Koningstuin and Avenue Louise/Louizalaan.

In cooperation with E-Guides.
