The living legacies from singer-songwriter Jacques Brel and choreographer Maurice Béjart

Arts and culture are flourishing in Brussels. Even a casual visitor can’t fail to marvel at the city’s history, art and architecture available on almost every city-centre street. But look a little closer and you will also discover a vibrant world of music, dance and theatre waiting for you.

Two of Brussels’ most famous residents – singer-songwriter Jacques Brel and choreographer Maurice Béjart – have left living legacies of their work for all to enjoy. Both venues are just a few meters from the Grand ‘Place and welcome groups of private visitors, offering an attractive cultural excursion for visitors to the city. Private guided tour? Pre-dinner cocktail? Post-meeting party? The choice is yours.

  • Maurice Béjart House

    Maurice Béjart House pays homage to one of the greatest influencers and modernisers of European ballet in the last century. Controversial and populist, he opened up traditional ballet to new audiences and fans. In 1960 he created the Ballet of the XXth Century in Brussels and lived in the city for many years. Today, his house in a narrow cobbled street in the historical city centre exhibits his work and aspirations.

    Available for private groups of up to 200, but ideally up to 50.
