Baroque palaces – walk along the baroque buildings of architect Van Baurscheit

Baroque year 2018

While writing my book about Baroque in Antwerp, I came across Van Baurscheit again. A versatile artist who largely determined the image of Antwerp in the early eighteenth century. I discovered that he died on the night of 9 to 10 September 1768. So on Heritage Day 2018 it is exactly 250 years ago that he died, coincidentally also in the Baroque year of Antwerp!


That deserved a party. As a gift for that party, I devised a walk along the baroque palaces designed by Jan Peter Van Baurscheit. Only in Dutch!

Download the walk for free on 9 and 10 September 2018. From 11 September the price for the walk is 4 euros. Have fun in Antwerp!
