Walking Tour

Art Nouveau everywhere: Schaerbeek / Schaarbeek

A. de Ville de Goyet ©

Dating back to 1905, Avenue Louis Bertrand/Louis Bertrandlaan links Chaussée de Haecht/Haachtsesteenweg with Parc Josaphat/Josaphatpark. It ranks alongside Avenue Louise/Louizalaan and Avenue de Tervueren/Tervurenlaan as one of the most attractive thoroughfares in Brussels. Façade competitions encouraged many architects to design extremely elegant houses adorned with a plethora of decorative features, including sgraffiti, ironwork, ceramics, turrets and balconies.
