What to expect

If you demand more than a superficial experience of Brussels, if you want to know why the architecture of the Grand Place has ‘golden’ allure, if you thirst for the history behind the statues spread throughout the centre – then the Brussels Mysteries and Legends Tour is the perfect, insider’s guide for you. 

Your Mysteries and Legends tour starts in the Grand Place square, where you get a detailed introduction to the multi-dimensional city of Brussels. As it progresses, the tour widens your awareness of your surroundings and you will be guided to observe sights that are often only a few metres from the path beaten by most tourists. Sights not noticed by them.

Belgian architecture is one of the important themes of the tour, along with the symbols of the Freemasons and the path of the Catholic pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostella, which has left its traces in many parts of the city.

You will also participate in a puzzle. Over a period of more than 3 hours, every symbol you discover will give you a closer insight into the legends hidden behind the walls of Brussels.

You will learn about the history of the city’s Freemasons and the philosophy they advocated, while discovering their Zodiac signs on the buildings you pass.

At St Michael’s Cathedral you will visit an authentic Freemason grave, receive a throughout explanation of the church’s architecture and hear of the legend of the colourful, stained-glass windows. It’s a genuine – and exciting – encounter with history.

The tour will also reveal the concealed city below the Royal Palace of Brussels. And blow the dust off centuries of history to introduce you to the founder of the Templars, Godfried of Bouillon, a man with a life story well worth sharing.

And, of course, because Belgium’s golden liquid is a must for every visitor, you will enjoy one of the very best Belgian beers. A taste experience that will ensure you remember this trip to Brussels.
