Visiting the sewers of Brussels

This page has been automatically translated from French into English by a translation software. Automatic translations are not as accurate as translations made by professional human translators. Nevertheless these pages can help you understand information published by the City of Brussels.

350 km of sewers form an underground network at the City of Brussels. The museum is only open for guided visits of groups (after booking).

It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get acquainted with the specific atmosphere of sewers: the heat, the humidity, the smells, the noise of waterfalls and the passage of cars, tracks left by rats, lights..

The development of the sewers makes an autonomous and safe visit possible. Of course one has to obey the rules.
