Porte de Hal (RMAH)

Although thousands of people pass every day close to this remaining part of the second surrounding wall of Brussels, along the "petite ceinture" between the Place Louise and the Midi Station, very few of them are conscious of its eventful history.

This fairytale monument, more than 600 years old is in fact the most remarkable witness of the City's medieval past.

After renovation work, the Porte de Hal houses a permanent presentation dedicated to the medieval City of Brussels. Part of the building, however, will still remain available to accommodate temporary exhibitions with a multicultural theme.

Don't hesitate to come and learn the history of the building and of City life in the Middle Ages, and at the same time admire the most important items of this rich past!
