A host of things to see and do during the Brussels Heritage Weekend

A week later than in Flanders and Wallonia, the annual Heritage Weekend is being held in the Brussels-Capital Region. More than 150 events are taking place today and tomorrow across the city.

The folklore group the Bûûmdroegers are offering the general public a look behind the scenes of their centuries-old association and dozens of art nouveau buildings are exceptionally open to the public.  

Part of the programme for this year’s Heritage Weekend has been put together by ordinary members of the public. The regional authorities as the general public which buildings, organisations or sites they would like to take a closer look at.  

All the 150 events that are planned this week are completely free of charge. What’s more during Sunday’s Car-Free Day the bus, tram and metro services provided by the MIVB with be free-of-charge so you won’t have to pay for transport either.  

A full list of what there is to do during the Heritage Weekend can be found on the website of the Brussels tourist board Visit.Brussels.
