Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

Together with three other townhouses of Victor Horta, including Horta's own house and workshop, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2000.

  • Visited during BANAD. The tour was quick and we didn't get to see the all building. I think there were other groups that visited the upper floors, but or guide took us to the cellar instead. The house is iconic and so much more than the pictures in an art history book. The feeling of light, openness and the richness of the materials are impressive. 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
