Spouses/partners: enjoy a guided tour of Brussels while your favourite geek attends FOSDEM !

This year, FOSDEM hires professional guides to offer a guided tours of Brussels for the spouses or partners.If he or 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 tours will take place both afternoons of the conference. The first one will give an introduction of the heart of brussels, and the other one will cover different views of the city, and make sure you're back well on time.

The guides are from the organization Brukselbinnenstebuiten.
