The green side of Tour et Taxis

16/09/2017 - 16/09/2017

In a still relatively unknown neighbourhood of our beautiful capital city, currently undergoing extensive urban renewal, where the railways once weaved their way, now extends a verdant tree-lined drive. This tranquil oasis is a popular shortcut for fans of non-motorised transport, linking the Pannenhuis metro station to the Royal Warehouse of Tour et Taxis. While waiting for the area to be transformed into a landscape garden by landscape architect Michel Desvigne, nature is timidly reasserting itself. Accompanied by a passionate nature guide, you will delve into a haven of urban biodiversity where wilderness and ornamental plants, beehives and wild fowl, vegetable gardens and pioneer trees co-exist. In the shadow of the Bruxelles-Environnement/Leefmilieu Brussel passive building, the contrast with the view of the Northern Quarter’s skyscrapers is striking!

In cooperation with Bruxelles Bavard.
