ATELIER DE RECHERCHE ET D'ACTION URBAINES (ARAU)
Boulevard Adolphe Max 55,
ARAU (Atelier de Recherche et d’Action Urbaines) is a group of Brussels residents organised as a non-profit association, which examines urban development projects, both public and private, and attempts to improve them from the point of view of local residents, by suggesting more housing, more mixed-function buildings, a more varied mix of social classes and the devotion of public space for the use of active citizens. Our overall objective is to promote the city as a place where people want to live. For more than thirty years, ARAU has been organising guided tours, which make both residents and tourists aware of the issues arising from the changes that have been made to Brussels.

Specialists of architectural patrimony and of contempory art, we (re)discover the city through guided tours and conferences in several languages, and we develop an "look pedagogy" because we are convinced that see and understand our own city helps to preserve and defend it.

TO LIVE ART AS AN « ART DE VIVRE »
To live art as an "art de vivre"...
Our keywords: creativity, interactivity, exclusivity and personality. Theme stays, a choice of incentives and team buildings.
Since 1986 we have developed our expertise in a very special field: cultural tourism. Our initial ambition is to live art as an « art de vivre », “to lead participants by the hand on our trips and tell them a story”: the story of a place, its population, its architecture and its culture in the broadest sense. Our team of professionals has always worked on request, adapting and creating tours and tailor-made programs.
Responding to the evolution and needs of the market, we have developed two distinct competencies: cultural tourism, special events and incentives; marketing and communication. Itinéraires answer to any request in the hour and in any languages!
Klare Lijn was founded in 2000 by a group of enthusiastic guides who were keen to bring a breath of fresh air to the Brussels landscape.
Alongside the standard guided tours, they also wanted to offer tours of the city that were tailored to people’s requirements. Their idea was not to simply stand in front of a group, but also to create a dialogue by responding to reactions and by asking questions themselves.
Today Klare Lijn has 18 experienced guides, most of whom are able to welcome visitors from both home and abroad in various languages.
The tours now on offer are as varied as the city itself. There is, of course, the classic walk, taking in the main tourist attractions. But if you want to discover a different side to our city then we are just the people you need. With Klare Lijn you can explore the different districts, book an architectural walking tour, learn all about eight of our cemeteries, request a musical or literary walk, and so much more besides.
Korei browses behind the scenes of the present and the past, in the twilight zone between architecture, city development, literature, the way of thinking from the 18th century up to now. Looking, seeing and listening, for individuals or groups. You can discover the city by coach or on foot in a few hours, half a day or a full day. A made-to-measure program for tours is possible on request.
Korei starts from a cultural-historical point of view. Indeed, the face of a city is never just what it seems. A seemingly impassive appearance hides a history of high ideals and all-out pursuit of profit, shared values and clashing expectations, food and drink. In other words, the history of a culture.
Contrasts are part of city life, within the framework of the history of the city and its inhabitants; the versatility of Brussels is easier to understand. We also see the diversity, the many surprises and possibilities that our capital offers. A tour through Brussels thus becomes a revelation.
Rue de Londres 15,
