The team from Wiki Loves Monuments in Belgium and Luxembourg organises on 4 days a Wiki Takes... photo tour in the cities Ghent, Mechelen, Antwerp and Liège to make photos of the local cultural heritage. These cities have a large number of monuments of what we have no photo of on Wikipedia. Still, we would like to make visible on Wikipedia which monuments there are in these cities.

On these days, we therefore set off to take these cities on photo. In several groups of 2 or 3 people, we follow a route through the city to photograph the monuments. Each group gets a list of monuments on that route. More details will follow on the day itself. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to have a drink paid by us and talk about the day. It is intended that the photo tour ends three hours after the start at the latest.
