VisitBrussels Now Offers Potential Tourists a Preview of Brussels

Belgian Google Street View was launched this morning at the Town Hall in Brussels. VisitBrussels also presented its application based on this technology. With this application, the Tourist Department in Brussels offers tourists an online presentation of the seven most important tourist attractions in the district of the Brussels capital.

“Nowadays, people are planning their journeys online to a greater extent. The online sale of train and air tickets is increasing. Hotel bookings are now also more often being made in this way. Today’s tourist books his journey from behind a screen in his own environment. As a result of this technology, he can also discover a bit about Brussels from that location. He can as it were go for a walk in the neighbourhood of his hotel in order to discover whether it meets his expectations,” said Patrick Bontinck, CEO of VisitBrussels. “As a modern Tourist Department, we are very aware of how this can help us to promote our destination, so we are very happy to be able to offer this technology on our website as of today.”
