From one forest to another

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Down through the ages, inhabitants of Brussels have lived thanks to the forest, a source not only of wealth and benefits, but also of mystery and refuge. This walking tour follows in the footsteps of our ancestors who constructed buildings for contemplation, rest or simply to live in, in what today is the green lung of the Brussels region. You will walk the same paths taken by monks. The Dukes of Brabant setting forth at the sound of the hunting horn, bandits taking refuge in the thickets, the Austrians, who injected new life into the Sonian forest, as well as Charles Albert and his dream of renewed power, will all make an appearance. An invitation to follow a path of stories and legends from one forest to another!

In cooperation with E-Guides.
