They will continue via Avenue du Congo, Boulevard Général Jacques, Boulevard Louis Schmidt, Boulevard Saint-Michel, Boulevard Brand Whitlock, Boulevard Auguste Reyers, Boulevard Général Wahis, Boulevard Lambermont, Pont Teichman, avenue de Vilvoorde, the Van Praet bridge, the Chaussée de Vilvoorde, avenue Van Praet, avenue du Parc Royal and avenue de Madrid, and, finally, the Esplanade.

Be careful if you take the E40 at the beginning of next week: the highway will at one point be… completely closed!
