The Old England building – previously a shop, but now owned by the government – is a remarkable example of Art Nouveau, with its black metal structure.

Visit: Tuesday - Friday: 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and on holidays: 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Eetvelde House

According to Victor Horta himself, the Eetvelde House, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, was the most daring of his entire oeuvre.

He allowed Horta to let his artistic inspiration run wild when he commissioned him to design a home for his family. Visit: the venue can be visited by request, but please enquire in advance.
