VIVA BRUSSELS: FREE CITY TOURS
Viva Brussels Free tour takes place:
from Mondays to Saturdays in English.
Everyday at 13:30 Meeting point is at the Grand Place.
Viva Brussels is run by some friends who decided to create an Alternative Free Walking Tour of Brussels. The idea is to give the people, both locals and travelers, the opportunity to see the city from an alternative perspective. The tour is free but of course at the end of every tour, they give the people the opportunity to value the tour depending their own experience and in that way people can collaborate as they want. Tips are totally welcome!.
Viva Brussels is a non-profit organization that intends to offer economically accessible touristic services while collaborating with social-ecological projects in Brussels. This services will be pointed to all kind of people, local or travelers, and since their goal is to not profit from this, the money collected will go to sustainable/ecological projects. Their main goal right now is to fund a sustainable studio , where they can create recycled gadgets that in a future they hope to share with all the people who join the tour as a token of gratitude for their collaboration. They will ask people to collaborate with them as volunteers, and in that way peple will be able to learn about the recycling process and sustainability.

COMIC STRIP WALK
For many years, Brussels has been the capital city of comics...
Since 1993, the city has been covering its walls with murals, a joint initiative of the City Council and the Comic strip museum. There are now more than thirty murals spread across the city. Famous comic characters are often represented in typical Brussels scenery. As these murals tend to be located outside the traditional tourist routes, the curious lover of comics who goes looking for them can at the same time discover totally unknown neighbourhoods.
