Many people may have been longing to visit Brussels but the pandemic has derailed their plans for the time being. In the meantime, a new and exciting alternative has been created: Brussels By Foot.
Brussels By Foot wished to actively respond to the various lockdowns currently overwhelming and limiting the holiday and travel opportunities of many. To overcome these difficulties while maintaining their vocation to help people discover the capital of Europe, their guides have developed virtual tours of Brussels.
How it works: The guide actually walks through the streets of the city, equipped with a camera and a microphone. You can follow them from your computer screen, comfortably seated in your armchair. Zoom meetings allow you to follow the tour as if you were there, asking questions and making comments.
Themed walks are also now available. The first allows you to (re)discover the popular city centre district of the Marolles through street protests against oppression, in times of crisis, war, health hazards and impoverishment. The second theme will lead you in the footsteps of the great gangsters and criminal cases that influenced Brussels in the 19th and 20th centuries.
