During a conversation with a fellow explorer we  came to the conclusion that I have been able to visit some beautiful steelworks ... In the neighboring countries! Having this playground of rust and steel in my backyard and even went there, was quite embarrassing... . A bit later a date was set and another  week later I stood on the blast furnace, enjoying the sun and the view. Wow! I immediately understand why the great love for industry begins here for so many explorers.  And admit, there are worse places and views to eat your sandwiches.   After our picnic and the conclusion that my fellow explorers was severely sunburned, we went back and went to discover the beautiful places that this place has to offer , bumping into the resident copper-thieves here and there, but they didn't seem to feel bothered by our presence.

 

1. the road up to the blast furnace. I love it that you can spot 'her'while you're gradually approaching. Also, active trains running by from the right hand side  make it a surreal experience

Nice Pictures, I love those rustic industry places! (:
We're going there on Sunday, but I heard they tightened the security some months ago. Anybody who was there lately or can tell something about that?

      Town Mansion 
       
       
      History
       
      The Town Mansion was originally built in 1912 by a wealthy petroleum importer. During the early 20th century, the area in which the mansion was built, had become a hub for many rich German families in the early 1900's. By 1918, once the First World War had come to an end and the town was heavily damaged by the intense bombing raids at the start of the war and then German occupation of Belgium in 1914. Only two houses in that street survived, the Town Mansion being one of those. It was then later occupied by a Belgium shipbuilder until the late 1960's, when it was used as an office space. The mansion was abandoned in 1991 and hasn't been formally resided in since.
       
       
      Visit
       
      Visited with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M and a non forum member. As I recall it was a particularly hot spring day and we all excited to see this location, partly to escape from the intense heat. Once we got inside we spent a short amount of time wandering around before we eagerly started taking our pictures. I can confidentially say that this is one of the grandest mansions in Belgium I have visited. I did wonder what the lives of the families that once inhabited it were like and the memories they must have had. It was a very enjoyable explore for me and as always, I hope you enjoy my photos!

      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.

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