Staycation BXL

The summer of 2020 will look quite different for many Brussels residents. More people will stay at home. The Flemish Community Commission (VGC) is therefore designing an adapted and more extensive holiday offer. For doing sports, playing and getting together. Relaxing, immersing yourself in culture and enjoying. And all that in your own neighbourhood, in complete safety.

After the call for projects Staycation BXL has been closed, no fewer than 179 staycation projects in total are planned that will provide the inhabitants of Brussels with an unforgettable staycation. They provide an exciting offer that matches one or more of the following themes: ‘fun in your neighbourhood’, ‘artistic fun’, ‘digital fun’, ‘senior fun’ and ‘small fun’. The projects are spread across all municipalities of the Brussels Region. Curious about the approved staycation projects? Discover the interesting offer of the first round and the surprising offer of the second round.

This page gives you an overview.
