Explore Brussels

Explore.Brussels is a round table of tour-guiding associations, founded in 1994, later becoming ASBL in 2016. It groups together ARAU, Arkadia, Bruxelles Bavard and Pro Velo. Our role: to offer you high-quality guided visits within the Brussels-Capital Region.

Explore.Brussels aims to highlight the architectural heritage of Brussels by promoting the guided visits of each of its member associations in a common way and making them more coherent.

Together, these associations offer more than one hundred and fifty different themed tours organised all year round. These take place on set dates between March and December for individuals and on request for groups throughout the year.

As part of the ASBL, it is involved in the launch of several projects such as the Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco Festival (BANAD Festival), guided visits around local Art Nouveau mansions or even the training of guides in Brussels, working with the member associations. The projects undertaken by Explore.Brussels together with the member associations always have a link to Art Nouveau and Art Deco. We are specialists in these two architectural movements.
