Belle Epoque at Zoo Antwerp

The Belle Époque weekends at the Zoo Antwerp were special events that aimed to evoke the nostalgic charm and elegance of the Belle Époque era, a period known for its cultural and artistic flourishing in Europe, roughly spanning from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

During these weekends, the Zoo Antwerp would transform into a scene reminiscent of the Belle Époque era, offering visitors a glimpse into the cultural ambiance of that time. The events typically featured various activities, performances, and attractions that reflected the style, fashion, and entertainment of the Belle Époque period.

Attendees were often encouraged to dress in period costumes or attire from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, adding to the immersive experience and ambiance of the event. The Zoo Antwerp's architecture and surroundings, already imbued with historic charm, would further contribute to the atmosphere.

Activities during the Belle Époque weekends included musical performances, vintage-themed entertainment, historical reenactments, and a picnic.

These events were designed to not only entertain visitors but also to educate and immerse them in the cultural richness of the Belle Époque period, offering a unique experience that combined history, entertainment, and the natural beauty of the zoo.
