Outside a small Belgian village you will find a large hall in which dozens of historic carriages and vehicles are located.
After we had found access relatively easily (thanks to a good tip), we were initially speechless.

There is a thick layer of dust on everything and the light shines orange through the ceiling, which gives the whole thing a special atmosphere.
Many of the carriages are ornately decorated and you can easily imagine how they were used back then.

Almost all vehicles are from army stocks and some of them are from World War II.
There were several Mercedes-Benz L 3000s which, according to the nameplate, were built in 1936.
On my homepage there is more information about this type of vehicle (www.tomvandutch.de/hagar-du-baron)
Omnibuses, carriages with runners and fire pumps were also in this hall.

One of these pumps was built by Deutz. It was so old that Cologne (Köln) was still spelled with "C" (Cöln) there.
The sight was very impressive.

However, we had to be very quiet as several people were working in the adjoining hall, which was only separated by a gate.
