How to discover Alost through an exciting culinary city game?
“Oilsjt” (Flemish slang for Alost) does not only stand for its carnival and the “ajoin” a nickname that literally translates to ‘onion’, derived from Alost’s famous onion farming, which flourished in the 19th century). Discover where some famous people such as priest Daens, Louis Paul Boon (poet and writer) and Dirk Martens (a remarkable printer and editor) resided, and explore the fascinating historic center, home to the “tettentoeren” (Flemish slang for Alost’s belfry). Let yourself be captivated by the rich past of the city behind the mask! This and so much more awaits you during our exciting city game in the heart of Alost.
