FOSDEM spouses/partner's tour
Since 2009, FOSDEM hires professional guides to offer a free guided tours of Brussels for the spouses/partners. If he/she would like to accompany you, and is not interested in the FOSDEM conference, this will make the stay worthwhile. Brussels is a city with a rich historical past, and a cosmopolitan present.
The free tours will take place both afternoons of the conference. Both tours will give you a different view of a part of the city and will be different from the tours offered last year.
The guides will gather participants at the info desk (building H), and every tour ends there as well for convenience. The tour on Saturday starts at 2pm, and ends at 18:30. The tour on Sunday starts at 12h15 and ends at 15h45, to make sure everyone is back on campus at 4pm. We meet just outside the infodesk, building H. The guides are from the organization Brukselbinnenstebuiten (= "Brussels turned inside out"). However, to make sure we have the right number of people in mind, please use the form below to register for these tours (you can select Saturday, Sunday or both). We have a maximum of 30 or 40 people
