In his lifetime, Pieter Bruegel the Elder painted 41 paintings that are all quite diverse as regards subject and style: peasant scenes and bustling village squares, as well as biblical representations and paintings of war and hell. The originals can be found in museums and collections all over the world.
But at the Bruegel House in Peer, you can take in Bruegels entire body of work in one location: this is unique in the world! A surprising short film examines whether the painter was really born in Peer. The film takes a closer look at Bruegels entire body of work in an original manner and links it to the city of Peer today. You can visit this exhibition individually with an audio guide (in Dutch, English, French and German), which tells you more about Bruegels various works in a lively and original manner.
If you are visiting the Bruegel House as a family then we have put together a rally that will take you on a search expedition through the centre, with fun activities for children.
