From Vermeer to Van Gogh / Cosmos Destination 

Summer 2024

During the day, immerse yourself in the genius of the painters of the North and their authentic paintings that are faithful representations of nature and its themes. The monumental basins are the perfect setting for a daydream along the Flemish canals, following in the footsteps of the great masters who represented the ordinary in an extraordinary way.

During the night, dive into a maze of stars, planets, nebulae, and supernovae. The sky and its stars have always exerted a great fascination on man, exploring the unknown expanses of the universe has been his dream since time immemorial.
