We had planned an entire day for exploring Horta's and other Art Nouveau houses in the European Quarter of Brussels later in our visit. As a prelude, we visited this early Horta house north of the center. Easy to get to! The No. 92 tram...More

This museum is a surprising discovery. Really worth it. Visiting this Horta house will transport you in the atmosphere of the way of confortable life as lived in the 19th century.

The Maison Autrique may not be among the main Art Nouveau attractions in Brussels but is well worth visiting for an hour or two, and of course a must-see for Horta lovers or those interested in living at the turn of the 19th and 20th...More

A beautiful building in a lively quarter full of art nouveau gems. Victor Horta, one of the most famous Belgian architects, built this house in 1893 for his friend Eugene Autrique when he was just 32 years old. The building has recently been reopened and...More

The Maison Autrique is Horta's first step into the world of Art Nouveau. The façade is attractive yet sober at the same time, with none of the flourishes of full-blown Art Nouveau as seen elsewhere in Brussels. The loggia effect at attic level is particularly...More

Autrique house is the first house designed by Victor Horta and shows already a few art nouveau elements, where he later became famous for, like the stained glass window in the staircase and the mosaïc floor at the entrance. When you want to visit the...More

Enjoy the privilege of having a 19th century to your own for a short visit. See how a (well-off) family lived then - in a house specially designed for them in 1893 in the Art Nouveau style. The famous architect Victor Horta was then at...More

La Maison Autrique is a good example of Art Nouveau architecture which houses temporary exhibitions. The most recent one, "Lanternes et Lumières", gives insight into the evolution of photographic and cinematic art.

One of Brussels' fine Art Nouveau houses. It feels like entering a 19th century private home. Nice details, but quite small. Unfortunately, the area in Schaerbeek, where the house is located, is not nice - it's run down, dirty and sinister. There is nothing Belgian...More

Reviewed 8 October 2011

Why? Because the number of real art nouveau elements in the interior (as well as the exterior) is rather limited. This is a typical example of the eclectical architecture mix, very popular in Brussels around those days. It shows a bit of Horta's talents, but...More
