Brussels 1900 - Art Nouveau by coach

Saturday 2 July - 10h00

Bernard Boccara
Over the last 30 years, this coach tour has proved the most popular and wellknown of ARAU’s tours. The tour helps participants to understand the place of Art Nouveau in Brussels, its origins, its technical and stylistic characteristics, and the personalities of its most wellknown architects. The tour travels through several districts of the city to show participants beautiful Art Nouveau facades, some of which are UNESCO world Heritage Sites. The tour also offers the chance to visit extraordinary Art Nouveau interiors, including some not normally open to the public. Each tour includes at least two interiors from the following list, subject to availability : Victor Horta’s Van Eetvelde house, Winssinger house, Autrique house or Waucquez store (now the Belgian Strip Cartoon Centre), Henri Jacobs’ Schaerbeek School No.1 or School No.13, Paul Hamesse’s Cohn-Donnay house (now De Ultieme Hallucinatie bar-restaurant), Fernand Symons’ Palais du Vin. Separate tours in French and English on the fourth Saturday of each month. On the last Saturdays of September and November, this tour becomes the “Totally Horta” tour.
