Only a few more things to post now from my epic explore week, I'd held off posting a report from here due to a few others springing up around the time I got back. It's fair to say this is probably the #1 urbex tourist spot in all of Belgium and for that reason I was unsure about going due to hearing stories of people walking round charging you to go inside and angry builders working on site. However it soon became clear that turning up at 8am on a Sunday morning was the best plan of them all, despite it being a weekend the place was absolutely deserted! We didn't see a single soul all morning which was great giving us the site to ourselves. More here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157633019152410/
Salve Mater Psychiatrisch Ziekenhuis. The former Belgian psychiatric hospital for female patients. Opened in 1927 by the Ã¢â‚¬ËœSisters of MercyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and partially abandoned in 1997. I visited this place twice on my visits to Belgium during the summer of last year. The first visit was very late in the day and the sun was gone within an hour, but I managed to get a whole afternoon in during the second visit. The buildings are slowly undergoing conversion into apartments and a bar according to one of the locals who was living in one of the renovated buildings. I also had the pleasure of running into the owner who shouted out of a window in what I assume was dutch, ran outside, shouted some more then went back inside and slammed the door behind him. I had to laugh but thought it was best to leave before he got any more wound up. I later went on to realise that people usually pay to enter and take pictures of the buildings, which explains why he was so upset. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.
