Hide & Seek Festival: Guided tour ‘A Turkish neighbourhood full of Art Nouveau’

The Chaussée d’Haecht / Haachtsesteenweg in Schaarbeek is the epicentre of the Turkish community in Brussels. Here, beyond Rogier and closer to Schaarbeek’s town hall, there are mainly smaller local shops. However, this neighbourhood also contains silent witnesses to the grandeur of Schaerbeek at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century: broad avenues and Victor Horta’s first mansion, the Autrique House (1893). The architects Henri Jacobs and Gustave Strauven also delivered beautiful art nouveau buildings. Nonetheless you can still find here and there some remnants of the simple village that Schaarbeek once was.

These guided tours take place outside and are organised by Brukselbinnenstebuiten as part of the Hide & Seek Festival 2022 put together by Muziekpublique.
