Explore.Brussels is a network of associations that organise top-quality guided tours in the Brussels-Capital Region. It was created in 1994 and became a non-profit association in 2015. Its member associations are ARAU, Arkadia, Brussels Chatterguides and Pro Velo. In 2020 and 2021, La Fonderie and Korei join the network as partner associations. Explore.Brussels is an information hub for the associations: it combines their programmed guided tours for individuals and their ranges of guided tours for groups and publishes one centralised resource for individuals and groups looking for guided tours, enabling them to find information more easily than by consulting the individual associations, and ensuring they are offered the full range of themes available at no extra cost and without generating unnecessary competition between the associations. The overall shared objective is to promote the tangible and intangible heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region. Explore.Brussels and its member associations also develop and promote larger events featuring guided tours of interiors that no single association could develop and promote alone. The annual Brussels Art Nouveau & Art Deco (BANAD) Festival is the best-known of these events. Explore.Brussels is a specialist in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage of Brussels and also a pioneer in the promotion of its Neo-Classical heritage. It is also developing other events and projects linked to these themes.
