0179 Belgian Beer Palace, Brussels, BE
The City of Brussels and the federation of Belgian Brewers have joined together with the intention of transforming the former Brussels Stock Exchange into an ‘experience centre’ of Belgian beer. This new major tourist attraction for Brussels is an interactive and permanent exhibition space on Belgian beer culture, brewing traditions, and heritage.
The monumental Stock Exchange building will be completely renovated. The original floor and colours of the impressive main space will be restored, two new and wider, but modest, entrances added to the side aisles, and a new rooftop pavilion constructed to complete the scenographic route with stunning views over the historic city centre of the European capital.
