Það sem verður gert

Looking for a real local experience, just a few steps away from the touristy crowds and the city center? Come with me to discover the alternative side of Brussels!

Let's visit up and coming neighborhoods with industrial vibes where hip locals live. This experience offers you a look into what the real Brussels is about: multicultural, vibrant and with tons of cool things to offer. This experience will take you to the birthplace of the city, Place Saint-Géry, where we can still see the old river Senne.

We'll also visit the modern Saint-Cathérine hamlet. What used to be the former harbor, nowadays is a very lively area with restaurants and bars in historical buildings.

But if there's an area in the city that you shouldn't skip, it's the up and coming canal area! Once an industrial area, it has rapidly changed over the last few years into a multicultural place with active artists, families and young students. Let me show you around this vibrant area!

A decade ago I moved to Molenbeek, when I found a job in the youth organization JES. There I started organizing tours to Brussels centre for our trainees and quickly discovered that the canal area itself was worth visiting, because of his industrial past! Later I worked as a music journalist. So now I combine my passion for history with my presentation skills as a journalist. The canal area is rapidly changing, attracting more and more creative and multicultural people. Who else than a passionate local guy could be your guide in this upcoming Brussels hamlet?

An excellent tour, showing different angles of the city’s history and industrialisation over the years. Christophe is a great story teller, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We enjoyed the tour very much and would definitely recommend it to others.

Super leuke tour gehad met Christophe! Hij weet ontzettend veel te vertellen en neemt je mee naar de plekken waar je als (Nederlandse) toerist niet zo snel terecht zou komen. Je kan alle vragen over Brussel bij hem kwijt en hij geeft top tips voor de rest van je verblijf. Absoluut een aanrader!

Zeer interessante, persoonlijke tour! Knap hoe Christophe kan afstemmen op onze voorkennis en vragen. Bijzonder om een andere kant van Brussel te leren kennen, ten opzichte van een standaard stadstour. Wij waren met onze 1 jarige baby, dit was geen probleem, er werd rekening gehouden met schaduw en kleine pauzes. Voor iedereen een aanrader!

Going on a walking tour with Christophe was an excellent way to discover less known parts of Brussels. His in-depth knowledge of the city and personal additions based on our interests as his public, made the experience all the better. Christophe is an easy-going, relaxed guide who made us feel at ease from the second we met. Luckily, he also has other tours! So definitely looking forward to seeing him again for another walking experience!

We had a tour guided by Cristophe, and really enjoyed it. He guided us from the touristic centre to the areas and places we would have never discovered on our own, and included fascinating details and stories from history, culture and people of all those places. He provided great local tips, and was in general really helpful in planning our visit in Brussels. Futhermore, he took excellent care of the safety under the current pandemic. We definitely recommend this activity in Brussels for everyone willing to discover bit more than the most popular sights!
