Saturday, February 2: by tram to the Sablon
Start: 14h, corner Roosevelt / Heger Avenue, ULB campus, reception building
content of the tour: <Per tram to the Sablon>, with time for a coffee break
Tour Description: Brussels is a city with many worlds. During a tram ride
to the center of the ULB the guide will talk about the passing city. At the
pallais de justice the group will exit the tram for a tour of the Upper
Town, a place where nobility, power and high bourgeoisie found a home since
the Middle Ages. Remnants of this we can still enjoy today during a stroll
through the Egmont Park, while we admire the Sablon church or during a
visit of the Palace of Egmont. But the Sablon is about more than the past.
Today it is a center of commerce and trade of antiques luxury items.

content of the tour: <Ter Kameren, the ponds and Flagey>, with time for a
Tour Description: A stone's throw from the ULB campus lies the Place
Flagey. This lively square, with the Flagey building in Art Deco on the
edge, has had a revival since its redesign. People come from all over the
city to watch and be watched from the terrace of Café Belga . The road to
it is very nice too, along Cambre Abbey, with the idyllic sources of
Maelbeek, along the Ixelles ponds, surrounded by beautiful villas and the
streets around the Place Flagey, still marked by the Portuguese migration.
End: 3:45 p.m., Flagey
