A grand Brussels safari in the city centre

17/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Accompanied by your guide and with your quiz in hand, this is an invitation to set off on a hunt for traces of nature within the rich heritage present in the heart of Brussels. Stone, wood, ceramic, etc., you will assemble the pieces of the puzzle from the façades which, through their specific architectural styles and decorative elements, tell the story of lions, dogs, wolves or even bananas… You will take the plunge, so to speak, leaving the marshes to join the Senne and making a detour via the fountains, the decorations of which were also inspired by Mother Nature.
You will also examine coats of arms, points of reference for the founding families and will see that, there too, nature is involved.
Observation, deduction, imagination, manipulation: a melting pot of stories, styles and treasure.

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