THE BRUEGEL TRAIL - DISCOVERING BOKRIJK WHILE GAMING?
The jester from the painting 'The Fight between Carnival and Lent' leads you and your class on a digital tow rope. Bruegel meets Pokémon Go and Snapchat in Bokrijk! Your class is divided into two teams upon departure. An “augmented reality” hat will take you into a realistic model depicting a true example of the 16th century. An exciting search for missing objects from the painting awaits you. Collect them all and put them in a nice position on your hat! Which team will achieve the best and fastest result? Once the game is finished, your classmates can literally step into Bruegel’s work and become figures in the painting. In this way you not only learn more about life and customs in Bruegel's time; you are also presented with a looking-glass view of life today.
BRUEGEL WORKSHOP ROUTE 'PAPER HAT'
You visit an old farmstead rebuilt based on an example from Bruegel’s era. A little further you will become acquainted with the six seasons as they were painted by Bruegel. But one season is missing. Do you see which one? You will encounter many mills in Bruegel's work. Do mills also appeal to your imagination? Climb with your class up into the windmill from Mol-Millegem and experience the Bruegelian vistas. The Paper Hat workshop: People in the 16th century often wore headwear, usually made of leather or textile. We keep up that tradition in our atelier, with hats made of paper! Using different types of paper and unique templates, the children can create fantastic examples for themselves. Who will conjure up the most beautiful hat creation? There will be lots of laughter! Don't forget to show your hat to your classmates.

The Bruegel trail 'The World of Bruegel'
Discover the Bruegel Trail with an experienced Bokrijk guide. Who was Pieter Bruegel? Which little known story connects him and Bokrijk? How do you interpret Bruegel’s landscape paintings and what do his encyclopaedic works tell us about daily life in the 16th century? You get the answers to all thanks to a fascinating journey through the museum, while taking some time at each of our Bruegel stops. Finally we show a selection of original 16th-century objects from the Netherlands collected by the Viennese museum’s Bruegel expert Sabine Pénot, items that were contemporaries, as it were, of Pieter Bruegel and that often played a role as painter's models in his work.
