Belgium Monastery Mont G (main chapel) March 2016

Recommended Posts

Seeing pictures of this place is one of the main reasons I came along on a trip to Belgium. Personally im agnostic when it comes to religion, but being in this building is the closest thing to being with God I will get. I spent most of my limited time here just looking and absorbing it all it. 

And I think we can all agree, while out exploring we spend far to much time looking down our cameras view finder and not enough time actually looking at the beauty around.


I will be back as I didnt get time to look and explore the rest of the Monastery. 


Thank you to @BlocksPhotography for quickly taking me to this place. We only had time for 30 mins in here as we were meeting a Belgian friend at another location, so I covered it the best I could. A wide angle is really needed here, so thanks @CuriousityKilledTheCat for lending me yours for a few shots. :) 


Shot with a Nikon D3300 with a 35mm, 18-55mm and a 10-20mm.


Thank you for looking.

Well covered for a 30 minute stop off, it's a pretty big place! There isn't all that much to see in the rest of the monastery, so good choice to stick with just the chapel.

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      An old train repair facility. Linked with one of the big steel works in Belgium. Now all closed. Things date back to around 2012. I think it closed around this time. the place isn't a bad mooch. a few people living inside taking copper.

      The well known Lycée V. has been a grammar school for girls only. It#s been closed in the 1990's and abandoned since.

      A large hospital,build in the 60's and will be demolished soon. It was one of the hospitals where they also removed the lamps and tables in the OK room.
      But still a nice location for a Saturday with a nice staircase.
      More can be found on my flickr page.
