A postal sorting shed doesn’t sound like an immediate tourist draw, but the Tour & Taxis complex is an architectural masterpiece, its 21st-century revamp creating a fine exhibition and commercial space in these Victorian warehouses and customs depots. It’s all part of the ongoing gentrification of Brussels’ run-down canal district, from where you can now take a variety of summer barge cruises.
