  • Magnificent "art nouveau" house in the center of Brussels. It's really worth the detour. Make sure to go there on a sunny day, to enjoy the light effect on the last step, where part of the roof in mad...  more »
  • In Brussels we have the art deco walk done. N visiting shopping streets levrt this walk also a trip with the Studio and the House by the archiect Horta on. It's nice to take a walk around. The infinite mirror, the verwarrming and the dining table with built-in phone give really the attractions of the time from then on.

  • The best way to get there is to use the tramway 81 accessible from much of the city for his long journey. A person with minimal sensitivity to art must not miss this jewel set in a narrow street not really flattering. I assure you that the visit will prove to be a great surprise for even the least sensitive to art. Also nearby you will notice other buildings of the same style. Brussel was a city where better than any other part of the world grew and grew this artistic movement. The extensive bibliography that you will find inside the House attests to what has just been said. Just not by the same author there is the hotel Hannon ... Alas for years abandoned waiting for funds to restore it. Interior design (jewelry) you can see them on some volume contained therein, the outdoors, you can see live. Very interesting

  • An absolute gem and must see in Brussels! All designs just flowing, so well put together. Apart from that, a very pleasant place to be in.
  • Very interesting, small place, loved the art nouveau architecture and design. You cannot take pictures and even very small bags are not allowed inside. The staff was not very nice so be ready to be patient.
  • The house is very special and our tour guide was great. It is just a pity that pictures are not allowed and that there is no freely available educational material (no audioguide / teachers' guide).
  • It all goes together pretty neat, as if there's a pattern. And if you like architecture it might just be the place for you. If you're under 18, the ticket is 3£. Also, no photos, and the staff obviously like this idea so much that they make you put your mobile and other belongings in a safe until you finish the tour. (!!!) So don't forget you're not allowed to carry your phone. At all. The nicest travels, duderinos 🌿
  • What a great house! You need to see what is good living in great house. What a house could and should be! Would recommend it.
