Halle Gate (RMAH)

Although thousands of people pass the remains of Brussels' second city wall every day, along the "little belt" stretching from Place Louise to Gare du Midi Station, very few know about its tumultuous history. This fairytale monument dating back over 600 years is actually the most remarkable witness to the city's medieval past.
Halle Gate houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to the medieval City of Brussels.

Climb the 169 steps of the inner staircase and enjoy a stunning panoramic view over the capital. Virtual binoculars allow you see the city as master painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder would have seen it in the 16th century. Halle Gate is a genuine voyage back in time!

"Magical Theatres" temporary exhibition until 4/12/2022.
