Expert review of Cimetière d’Ixelles
The Ixelles cemetery is one of the most important cemeteries in Belgium; it’s the final resting place for a stellar line up of history’s greats, including Art Nouveau master Victor Horta, Frederic Neuhaus (inventor of the praline), violin virtuoso Eugène Ysaye, and Nobel prize-winners doctor Jules Bordet and scientist Ernest Solvay, among others.
It’s fascinating walking among the array of ornate tombstones and reading the various farewell messages. It’s also a lovely escape from the hubbub of the city.
