    Autrique's house is opened to visits

    by BeChar Updated Jan 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Autrique's house is the first private house of Architect Victor Horta (designed in 1893 for his friend Eugène Autrique, Engineer of Solvay) and contains important elements of Art Nouveau style.

    The house was recently restored according to the project of comics creators ("Les Cités Obscures", 1980) François Schuiten (son of two architects) and Benoît Peters. Their objective is to honour house architecture while opening to the imaginary world. Since December 2004, the house is opened for visits, conference, dinner, ...

    More generally, 2005 was declared year of Art Nouveau. Have a look at the ptitetoile's Art Nouveau travelogue to have an overview of Art Nouveau in Brussels.

    Visits from Wednesday to Sunday 12am-6pm

  • Ultieme Hallucinatie

    by austen1973 Written Aug 31, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bar-restaurant is called De Ultieme Hallucinatie. This 150 years old huilding facade doesn't unfortunatelly give all the credit it really desserves because the interior is absolutely beautiful, all designed by Paul Hamesse in the Art Nouveau. Highly recommend to go there if you like that style.

    Art Nouveau

    Brussel is rich in Art Nouveau ('new art')architecture. Belgian architects like Victor Horta and Henri van de Velde were among the most prominent architects of the style. Especially Horta built many buildings in the city, mostly in southern neighbourhoods like St. Gillis, which is where you can find and visit his former house. Closer to the centre is this former kindergarten. He also designed the central railwaystation, but that can hardly be called Art Nouveau.

    Making a wish while in Brussels

    by kylian74 Updated Jan 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a religious belief. They believe that when you pay attention, hold and touch this and make any wish...who knows, it would come true!
    This can be found at the Grand Place right beside the Town Hall building, near the street and on the passage way. I've been passing here many times but never realized to make any wish.
    Next time!

    Area around the Maison Horta

    by sourbugger Updated Dec 31, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The maison Horta is a stunning place to wander around, and at only 5 euro, very well priced.

    I'm not going to say much more about it, as others have altready done that, and the museum website is very good as well.

    My tip here is after visiting the museum have a wander around the area using your ticket (which has a small map printed on it) as a guide to check out half a dozen or so other art Nouveau buildings.

    The surrounding area is quite upmarket and has a number of crafty shops here and there.

    Mr Horta to  you..

    Visit Victor Horta's house

    by lucretia319 Written Aug 26, 2002

    The founder of the Art Nouveau movement designed and lived in an exquisite home in Brussels. The staircase and light fixtures were all wild with brass and copper tendrils. Very unique. All art lovers will enjoy.

    We discovered this clock against one of the buildings, but I have no idea which building or what the clock is called. It is however really beautiful.
