ARAU organises themed guided tours around Brussels for individuals and groups, by bus or on foot.

In short:

  • An organisation for themed guided tours
  • A positive approach based on reconstruction, rehabilitation and renovation
  • Guided tours for individuals or groups and various themes

ARAU is not a traditional tour operator, it is above all an active committee of residents proposing a positive approach based on the reconstruction, rehabilitation and renovation of the city.

The programme of guided tours for individuals stretches from April to December and offers several tours each weekend.

The themes for the tours are varied: Brussels 1900 - Art nouveau, Brussels 1930 - Art Deco, Brussels with attitude, the Grand Place and its surroundings, the Marolles, Living in Brussels, Europe in Brussels, Art Nouveau in Schaerbeek... Art Nouveau and Art Deco visits allow visitors to see the interiors.

ARAU organizes tours on request all year round (French, English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian) for cultural study groups, company outings, school groups, families, etc.
