World Tourism Day 2019

World Tourism Day is commemorated each year on 27 September, with celebrations led by UNWTO. Its purpose is to foster awareness among the global community of tourism’s social, cultural, political and economic value and the contribution the sector can make in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2019, in line with UNWTO’s overarching focus on skills, education and jobs throughout the year, World Tourism Day will be a celebration on the topic ‘Tourism and Jobs: a better future for all’.

What to see

Baroque! Baroque!

On this day, in 1640, Pieter Paul Rubens died. His legacy is alive and kicking and still rocks on. Rubens Inspires! is a festival which kick-offs this weekend. He will host you through various events until the end of this year.
