From November, Hotel Metropole will be the setting for ‘Fantastic Brussels’ every day for four months. Thanks to multidisciplinary artists, holograms, lasers and video mapping, the ‘multimedia show’ aims to reveal highlights from the capital’s history in a 360° experience.

Spectacle builder Symphony of the Stones will put on the show from 4 November to 28 February every day between 12 noon and 9 pm in the classified hall of the famous Brussels hotel. The history of the capital (and Belgium) is central to the narrative, multimedia spectacle show that lasts 45 minutes.

The Symphony of the Stones has already brought Ghent’s history to life. The company aims for a total performance with a lot of attention for sound and light.

Belle époque until today

Through three adventurers who bring the sleeping Hotel Metropole to life, the history of Brussels is highlighted from the belle époque to today, through the roaring twenties and the golden sixties, with a focus on Brussels heritage, remarkable highlights and Brussels figures.

Hotel Metropole has been locked for over two years now. In 2020, the corona crisis gave the iconic hotel the death blow after years in which the luxury hotel slowly declined.

A ticket for the performance costs 17 euros, children under 5 years old can attend the show for free.
