Water, water everywhere! Water in all its forms!

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Set off on a hunt to find the link between Brussels and a fundamental element: water. All sorts of water! Clear waters, springtime waters, running waters, amorous waters, deep waters, heavy waters, dormant waters, dead waters, purifying waters, healing waters, protective or destructive waters. Travelling upstream like salmon, this walking tour will examine the link between Brussels and water from its founding on the banks of the Senne up to the present day. It will address, among other things, the importance of water in a city, the birth of Brussels linked to the presence of water, as well as the development of fountains and water distribution systems. A poetic, alchemical and dreamlike journey worth savouring down to the last drop!

In cooperation with Bruxelles Bavard.
