MIXITY WALKS: Another way to discover the diversity of Brussels’s neighbourhoods



The 16 MIXITY WALKS maps offer original routes to explore the cultural wealth to be found in the capital’s different neighbourhoods.

Brussels does not insist on a single cultural model but derives its strength from its diversity. That’s what MIXITY.brussels 2017 highlights throughout the theme year. visit.brussels has therefore created the MIXITY WALKS routes in partnership with Brukselbinnenstebuiten and different municipalities. 16 original routes for a different way to discover Brussels.

From Matongé to Old Molenbeek and taking in Flagey, inquisitive visitors will learn everything there is to know about the neighbourhoods, their histories and their stories. Guided tours, encounters with greeters and… no fewer than 16 routes will immerse visitors in the marvellous patchwork of the Brussels’s neighbourhoods.

Thanks to these 16 new routes, visit.brussels is inviting visitors to venture away from the traditional tourist circuits and discover some of the capital’s other neighbourhoods and facets. It is also a great way for Brussels residents to rediscover their own Region and learn more about its diversity.

  • Central Anderlecht • The European district
  • Auderghem and Logis-Floréal • Old Molenbeek
