Le réseau d’égouts sous Bruxelles-Ville

Did you know? The sewer network under the Brussels Region is nearly 1900 km long! Thousands of cubic metres of waste water flow through these 1900 km of underground drains and tunnels every day.

The Sewer Museum invites you on an unusual trip into a very hidden side of Brussels but which is absolutely vital for the running of the city. An active museum with the River Senne playing the leading role. A museum that tells the story of when, why and how the sewers were built, describes the sewer workers job in this underground world and explains the city’s water cycle.
