Walking tour

The colours of Art Nouveau in Schaerbeek/ Schaarbeek

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 appealing avenues in Brussels for a pleasant stroll. Façade design competitions encouraged many architects to design extremely elegant houses adorned with a plethora of decorative features, including sgraffito plaques, wrought iron, ceramics, turrets and balconies. The rich, diverse architecture you will see on this tour is sure to leave an impression!

In cooperation with Itinéraires, sur les Sentiers de l’Histoire.
