Since 1983, Arkadia explores the richness of the Belgian and Brussels’ heritage and develops a large number of cultural projects. The themes range from architecture and urban planning to culture and visual arts from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Seeing and understanding the city and its architectural development, approaching artistic creation and giving it meaning, are the activities we want to share with the public.
Specialists in architectural heritage and contemporary art, we (re)discover the city through guided tours and lectures in several languages, and develop an educational approach. We are convinced that seeing and understanding one's city helps to preserve and defend it.
Our activities :
- Guided tours by foot, by bus, by metro
- Educational projects
- Visits of exceptional interiors
Our expertise :
- Our team consists of 60 historian and art historian guides. Each guide has his or her own area of expertise (period, subject, artistic field), which ensures a high quality visit. We offer tours in French, Dutch, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Hungarian.
Depending on your profile, Arkadia can offer you an adapted formula:
- If you are on your own and would like to join one of our tours, we offer an annual programme for individuals focusing on Brussels, its history and the contemporary city.
- If you have a group and would like to organise a walk, bus or metro tour in the language of your choice, we offer a wide range of original and lively tours.
- If you are a teacher and would like a visit adapted for your class: we offer thematic and educational visits with a guide specialised in working with students.
- If you are a company and would like to organise an activity with your team: we offer a series of fun and original activities based on history, gourmet food and exceptional interiors.
