Open Monuments Day focuses in Brasschaat on the Map district. As the Mariaburg district was presented last year, visitors can now learn more about the history of the district Map.

The organization put together two heritage walks, two loops of four kilometers. Signs with an old photo and a QR code were placed at 15 different places in the district. With this code you can find out more about the monuments that are still present, have been thoroughly renovated or have disappeared. Attention is also paid to fun stories and anecdotes. For example, who does not know the legendary catering business Mother Mie?

The Gunfire Museum, the control tower at Perron Noord and the municipal park are also on the program. Gunfire and control tower open the doors and show the unique collection of post-war artillery and armored vehicles and the history of the airfield respectively. In the municipal park, there are walks with guides who bring up the 150-year-old history of the castle. The historic mayor Armand Reusens will be given a prominent place here because he ensured that the park was opened to the public.
