From Inn to Icon: The History of La Maison du Cygne

If its walls could talk, the silent, wood-panelled surfaces at La Maison would say a lot. They’d speak about the exciting events, occurrences and historical figures who graced its halls.

La Maison Du Cygne’s origins hint at humble beginnings. Believed to have started life as an inn, it was first built in the 1500s.

After being burned to the ground by the French military, the establishment rose from the ashes in the late 1600s. A rebuild that completely transformed La Maison du Cygne ensued. Dubbed “the jewel of elegance” due to its ornamental wealth, splendour, and unique architectural style, the grand building was, and still is, a sight to behold.

Like a feline, the venue has lived many different lives in the later years. It has changed ownership and had makeovers. It went from a private house into a cafe. Most notably, the venue became the meeting place of Marx and Engels. There, the two secretly hatched political theories over cigars and wine.

Fast forward to today, the historical event venue in Brussels boasts one of the city’s best restaurants. It offers a classic European dining experience in an elegant setting and hosts many high-end events and occasions. Could yours be the next?

La Maison du Cygne’s Grand Place Location

La Maison du Cygne occupies prime space in Grand Place, one of Europe’s most famous historic town squares. 

Thronged by countless tourists daily, Grand Place isn’t just a popular attraction but has also been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rich past and architectural diversity.

Grand Place, constructed in the 12th century, saw some of its most defining structures completed in the 17th century. Today, the famous site stuns visitors with its diverse architectural tapestries. It showcases a blend of styles that vividly depict European society and culture through the ages, from ornately decorated buildings to gilding adorned houses.

Visiting Grand Place is more than a trip into the past. Throughout the year, a hive of activity unfolds within the space. The annual flower carpets and the towering Christmas tree in the town centre are highlights, transforming the square into an enchanting space. Street performers and musicians also add to the town’s lively scene as music fills the air.
