This year, the season of guided tours for individual members of the public offers 500 guided tours on fixed dates from March to the end of December, on a variety of interesting themes such as Art Nouveau and Art deco, of course, but also including diversity, ecological walks, history and the pleasures of life,… . Groups can request tailor-made guided tours for any day of the year and choose from a large number of languages.
The pre war Brussels pubs offer a wide variety of atmospheres and some of them have kept their Art Nouveau or Art Deco decoration. The stained glass windows, elegant curved woodwork, precious fabrics, mirrors and shining counters are still witnesses of the Belle Epoque, the Roaring Twenties & Jazzy Thirties. They also tell about the evolution of the trends and tastes: from the well-lit, big & noisy brasseries of the turn of the century to the more discreet, cosy and intimate bars of the interwar period.
