Over the last 30 years, this coach tour has proved the most popular and well-known of ARAU’s tours. The tour enables participants to understand the place of Art Nouveau in Brussels, its origins, its technical and stylistic characteristics, and the personalities of its most well-known architects. The tour travels through several districts of the city to show participants beautiful Art Nouveau facades, some of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The tour also offers the chance to visit extraordinary Art Nouveau interiors, including some not normally open to the public. Each tour includes at least two interiors from the following list, subject to availability: Victor Horta’s Van Eetvelde House, Winssinger House, Autrique House or Waucquez store (now the Belgian Comic Strip Centre), Henri Jacobs’ Schaerbeek School No.1 or School No.13, the former Institute of Sociology by Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld, Paul Hamesse’s Taymans house, and Fernand Symons’ Palais du Vin.
