Atelier de Recherche et d’Action Urbaines (ARAU) is an urban research and action group. It offers guided tours, including the 'Au-delà du Petit Sablon’ tour, which is available only in French.
The Square du Petit Sablon was built at the end of the 19th century by the architects Hendrik Beyaert and Paul Hankar. It offers visitors a wonderful glimpse of our national history in one of the capital's oldest neighbourhoods. During the walk, you'll explore an extraordinary setting that stretches from Egmont Park, Egmont Palace and its former stables, to rue aux Laine and its 18th century mansions, the Prince Albert Barracks with its recently restored façades and the postmodern Ministry of Foreign Affairs overlooking rue des Quatre Fils Aymon and rue des Six Jeunes Hommes. That's an awful lot of history for a so-called small Sablon!
Date and time: Sunday 8 May at 14:00 (duration: 1 hour).
Starting point: at the entrance to Square du Petit Sablon on rue de la Régence, 1000 Brussels.
Maximum number of people: 25 people.
