2020 European heritage days
19/09/2020 > 20/09/2020
On 19 & 20 September, Europeans will enjoy the 2020 European Heritage Days !
The European Heritage Days are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural event shared by the people of Europe. The Council of Europe launched the initiative in 1985, and in 1999 was joined by the European Union to create the joint action, which has continued up to the present day. Conceivably, the Programme, which can boast up to 20 million visitors every year, generates the greatest value, Euro for Euro, of any “European” cultural project.
This year again, some of our member cities will take part to this special event:
- Brussels: visitors will be able to visit some of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings from the capital as the van Eetvelde House from Victor Horta, the Saint-Cyr House from Gustave Strauven or the Ultieme Hallucinatie from Paul Hamesse. They will be able to take part into walking tours to discover Art Nouveau neighbourhoods through Brussels.
- Budapest : visitors will be able to visit the Villa György Ráth and its permanent exhibition “Our Art Nouveau”, and to take part to the free guided tour “Modern feeling of life at the turn of the century”.
- Nancy: visitors will be able to visit the Musée de l’École de Nancy and the Villa Majorelle through free guided tours.
