The Hôtel Tassel (French: Hôtel Tassel, Dutch: Hotel Tassel) is a townhouse in Brussels, Belgium, designed by Victor Horta for the Belgian scientist and professor Emile Tassel and built from 1892–93. It is generally considered the first true Art Nouveau building, because of its highly innovative plan and its groundbreaking use of materials and decoration. It is located at 6, rue Paul-Emile Janson/Paul-Emile Jansonstraat.Plan my Brussels trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

The somehow theatrical main facade does not show what the interior is, which is an interesting approach. It's not easy to get to go to this place, and the visit itself was not exactly what I was expecting, but still worth it...
World Art Nouveau architecture end 19th century by Victor Horta - very exceptionally to be visited only in an organized context
