It’s happening this weekend – Heritage days in Brussels take place on 19 and 20 September 2020. Over the years, this event have become a highlight of the Brussels cultural events calendar, drawing thousands of visitors from Brussels and all over Belgium. The initiative offers a fresh perspective on the heritage of our city. and participants can explore places off the beaten track, learn about architectural styles or visit sites that are not generally open to the public.
This year, the Heritage Days are all about colour. Be it inside buildings, on their façades or in public spaces, colour is a key feature of Brussels’ heritage and can be seen throughout our city, injecting light and life into our everyday surroundings.
The event offers something for everyone – walking tours, scavenger hunts, bus tours, family activities, guided tours in sign language, and much more.
In view of the ongoing health crisis and to ensure that the Heritage Days can go ahead as safely and as seamlessly as possible, visits to indoor sites must be booked in advance.
Bookings can be made online from 4 September 2020 on this website. All visits to indoor sites must be booked, except visits to hospitality venues and places of worship (no bookings are required for these two site types). Please note: Pre-booking is also necessary for children, whatever their age.
