After a successful first day exploring some of the delights of eastern Belgium we eventually found the car park which was close to our hotel for the night, got our stuff and headed for the hotel only to find we’d walked the wrong way for 10 mins. I also noticed we’d walked straight past the entrance to Pritzer Fac. As we had all our stuff with us and it was a really busy street we decided to head back the way we came and actually find the place we were staying at.
Having zonked out for about 6 hours we awoke to one of the group’s somewhat bizarre alarm tune of Bonnie Tyler’s I Need a Hero. Thankfully no early morning rendition by the phone’s owner.
We set off and once outside we immediately saw the entry point and decided to park up the road, out of sight, just in case anyone was going to do the rounds. After a bit of shimmying here and there we got ourselves in for what ended up being about five hours of exploring visiting and re-visiting the various parts of the site. We decided to try and do as much of this place as was possible and drop some other locations we’d planned for later in the day so this is just a small selection of the shots I managed to get. We didn’t see anyone else on site for the entire time we were there but towards the end we heard a gate opening and a car engine, and given we had skipped breakfast and were flagging a bit, we decided to call it quits and head for the delicacies of the nearest Maccy D’s. As we drove past the proper entrance to the site we saw what we think was the caretaker’s car, which must have been the gate and car sounds we’d heard a little earlier.
This had been the room I was really after having seen pictures of this place from previous reports:
