From mushrooms at the post office to glass towers

15/09/2017 - 16/09/2017

In the canal zone, the prestigious multifunctional Tour et Taxis site (exhibitions, trade fairs, conferences, restaurants, shops) is undergoing rapid change. Since 2014, there has even been a farm producing mushrooms using coffee grounds collected by bike. Focused firmly on the environment, the site is also home to the new headquarters of Bruxelles Environnement/Leefmilieu Brussel. After a small tour of this surprising site you will pass through Maximilien Park to finish up in Gaucheret Park, developed on land that had been abandoned for over 30 years in this once working-class northern quarter of Brussels which became a business district with the construction of numerous glass towers.

In cooperation with E-Guides.
