Brussels Mysteries and Legends Walking Tour

  • Discover the hidden treasures of Brussels during a 4h+ experience
  • Learn about the symbols and signs of the alchemists and Freemasons
  • Visit the Coudenberg, site of a former Royal Palace
  • Enjoy the best panoramic views of Brussels and see the old city gates of Brussels

Discover the hidden treasures of Brussels, the symbols of several “secret” societies, like the Templers and the Freemasons, as well as astronomical, astrological and other ‘esoteric’ mysteries. This voyage of discovery will lead you to secrets, hidden outdoors, but also in churches, temples and underground spaces. Explore the Grand Place in Brussels through different glasses.

If you are not satisfied with the image Brussels is offering at a glance and you are interested in finding out why Grand Place architecture has the golden allure and all the history behind the statues spread all over the centre, then Brussels Mysteries and Legends will be the perfect guide for you.

The Mysteries and Legends tour will start in Grand Place Square, for a detailed introduction into the bi-dimensional city Brussels. During the tour you will be able to widen your sight and observe elements that would often be only a few metres from the heavily trodden tourist pathways but passed unnoticed. The Belgian architecture would be one of the important subjects of the tour, along with the symbols of the Freemasons or the path to the catholic pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostella, whose marks are spread all over the city.
You will participate in 3h+ puzzle, where every spotted symbol will bring you closer to understanding the legends behind the walls of Brussels. You will learn about the history of the city’s Freemasons and philosophy they were advocates of, while paying attention to the Zodiac signs that can be found on the buildings. St Michael’s Cathedral will be the location where you will visit an authentic Freemason grave and you will receive a throughout explanation about the architecture of the church and the legend of the colourful windows for a genuine encounter with history.

During the tour you will come across the concealed city below the Royal Palace of Brussels and puff the dust away from the history of the founder of the Templars, Godfried of Bouillon, whose life is well-worth sharing. And because Belgium’s golden liquid is a must for very visit here, you will enjoy one of the best Belgian beers that will make sure you will remember this trip to Brussels.
