With 'Gerrit and the City' I want to take you beyond the obvious, inspire you to go places other than the ones you already know. Charming Tournai fits right into that frame. With a history of more than 2,000 years, it is one of the oldest cities of Belgium. Despite its relatively small size, it has an exceptional patrimony, as testified by its two buildings that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Next to that, the city has seen the emergence of new, hip places in recent years, meaning you can get a taste of both past and present when going there!
