Through the eyes of Bruegel: a reconstruction of landscapes

The Brussels-Capital Region is home to many tourist attractions. One of which is the landscape that inspired Bruegel, which you can walk and cycle through.

Walk and cycle through Bruegel's landscape

If you take a close look at Bruegel's 'The Blind Leading the Blind', you'll clearly recognise the Sint-Anna Church. This church is still standing today and is the starting point for the walking and cycling route that catapults Bruegel into the 21st century. Contemporary artists and designers have created fourteen unique installations by viewing the beautiful landscape of the Pajottenland through the eyes of Bruegel. the result is a surprising and unique experience. the route ends at the windmill in Sint-Gertrudis-Pede that was depicted in the paintings 'The Magpie on the Gallows' and 'The Hunters in the Snow'.

It's a great activity for families, as the route passes playgrounds and picnic spots. Alternatively, you can sample beer at the local breweries!

This route can also be combined with a visit to the exhibition 'Feast of Fools': Bruegel rediscovered' in the beautiful Kasteel van Gaasbeek.
