Alter Brussels introduces itself as an organiser of 'World City Trips' in the city. Their guides are big fans of Brussels and showcase the city's intangible cultural, touristic, and, above all, human heritage. They offer you original outings to the city's different "countries" with an enthusiastic guide offering explanations about the "natives" as well as workshops in each "country" visited. Select your country and visit a whole different Brussels as it’s experienced by the communities that call it home. It's the Brussels of others who come from all over the world to enrich the city and be changed by it in turn.
Example: Little Italy in Brussels.
