Back to Bruegel

Experience the 16th century
Sat 22-06-2019 - Sun 21-06-2020

The Halle Gate, a uniquely preserved section of the medieval defensive wall of Brussels, appeals to the imagination. In 2019 it will also become a virtual gateway into Bruegel's universe. Virtual reality technology will carry you into an astonishing immersion in Bruegel's paintings. Experience the 16th century in the flesh through face-to-face contact with original objects from the Royal Museums of Art and History: treasures from the New World, musical instruments, scientific measuring devices, weapons and armour. Up above the old city gate, you can enjoy an impressive view over the city. And high-tech binoculars will transport you into Brussels and the surrounding countryside on the time of Bruegel.
