Walking tour

Discover Molenbeek through colour

This tour of urban and architectural heritage in the historical centre of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean/Sint-Jans-Molenbeek highlights both bright, contemporary colours and the more muted colours of the past. It features colours that enhance public spaces, colours that bring life to indoor spaces, decorative colours and colours with stories to tell. And what a variety of colour sources there are! Graffiti, the brightly-coloured Windmills of Molenbeek, a short stretch of the Lesser Senne watercourse, the diverse hues of neoclassical, Art Deco and modern architecture, the rich colours of power and a painted allegory of good government, stunningly beautiful stained-glass windows and mosaics contrasting sharply with sombre reinforced concrete… all this and more awaits!

In cooperation with MoMuse.
