The 2021 Heritage Days take place on 18 and 19 September. Focusing on the theme of "Meeting Points".
This year's event – the 33rd – will celebrate gathering places of all kinds, from public spaces, parks, markets, cafés, restaurants, literary clubs, ballrooms, function rooms and theatres through to visiting rooms, counter halls, boardrooms, meeting rooms, drawing and reception rooms, as well as iconic locations of collective experience.
The programme is packed with new discoveries, as well as old favourites that draw in visitors year after year.
Sites of all kinds will be open to the public, some of them rarely accessible, and over 100 activities will be organised throughout the region. With walking and bicycle tours, scavenger hunts, bus tours, exhibitions, family activities and more, there will be a wealth of opportunities to explore the places where people meet and socialise within the city.
During the Heritage Days/Journées du Patrimoine weekend, two information points in the centre of Brussels in the Halles Saint- Géry and at 7 Mont des Arts (Urban Contact Point) will welcome visitors from 10 am to 7 pm.
There, you can find the brochure with the complete programme and information about accessible places. The publications of the Cultural Heritage Directorate will be on display (available for sale at Halles Saint-Géry).
At the Halles Saint-Géry, at 4.30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, you can also end your day with a performance by the Akhtamar string quartet.
