Heritage Days at WIELS

About this event

During the Heritage Days, this year around the theme "A Place for Art", WIELS organizes various activities focused on the history of the Blomme building.

The "Wielemans Tower" was designed in 1930 by architect Adrien Blomme and became an actual showcase for the flourishing activities of the former Wielemans brewery. After years of neglect, the building regained its original appearance after a meticulous restoration process between 2005 and 2008. The former brewery site is today a successful example of the redevelopment of industrial heritage.
