Sightseeing
take tram 51, a classic tram in 60's style design. The stop is around the corner of our street (at the Sainctelette bridge) all the way to Saint Gilles or further. Like this, you will see a lot of Brussels above ground, going through the city from north to south.
this is a projects of friends along the canal, all young Brussels people who wanted to open a community centre, and so they did, without much help of the authorities and all very DIY. During the week many local kids of the area can go play there, table tennis or other activities. In the weekend there are cheap vegetarian dinners (from 19h) and concerts now and then. Best is to walk the whole stretch on the canal, starting at the skateboard hall, garden and to the main Allee du Kaai building to get a glimpse of how community life should be allover the world!

The big old Tour & Taxis building from the 1800's is named after the German Thurn & Tassis family, who in the 1500 started the 1st international postal service in Brussels and inventors of taxi service. The building was a depot and train station for goods during the industrial time and became disused after. I got revamped in its former glory and is now used for expo's, trade fairs and festivals. Behind the building, every year the Couleur Cafė festival takes place, but which has now become a quite commercial pop festival. You can walk all around, on the backside you can easily walk into the Parckfarm park. On the side you still have the big hangars, one of them still serving as a true circus school, worth a peek!

Parks & Nature
Brussels livestream radio in middle of the park, close to the palace. when good weather, a great spot to hang out with a nice drink & listen to the music.
special new park, open since less than 2 years. The project started to revive a piece of overgrown land behind the Tour n Taxis building, before used for incoming freight trains. Now it is a lush green park with hills and a little bar in the middle (open in afternoons til 18 or 19h max).
