Brussels is Art Nouveau

The Ixelles Ponds, from town house to apartment building directions_walk

Departure from: Corner of rue du Lac and rue Vilain XIIII, 1000 Brussels

Lasts 2h00

As the twentieth century progressed, the inhabitants of Brussels progressively lost their attachment to individual houses and began to enjoy the apartment lifestyle, encouraged by the 1928 co-ownership law and the social upheavals of the time. This change has had a profound effect on the city, its architecture and lifestyles. The Ixelles Ponds district offers a remarkable panorama of some of the best twentieth-century buildings in Brussels, from Art Nouveau via Art Deco to Modernism.
