A little tour after Mass…
A meeting point for locals, Saint-Servais/Sint-Servaas Church has recently undergone a painstaking renovation. The current building dates from the 19th century, when major urban development work was under way. The church is full of treasures, including its baptismal font, pulpit and paintings as well as the largest organ in Brussels, which you will hear being played. The tour will place the church in the context of the development of the area by civil engineer Octave Houssa, with the construction of Avenue Louis Bertrand/Louis Bertrandlaan on the site of the old village centre of Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek. A wonderful place for a stroll, this avenue features a happy mix of Eclectic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Beaux-Arts buildings, as well as some remarkable designs by architects of note (Hemelsoet, Strauven).
