To give the nice pics of Aurora Borealis more perspective. I made these last year.

Cultural centre:







On the backside of the building you can walk trough untill you enter the city library. This is the view fro the readers room on the top floor:

Hasselt is a great shopping city but doesn't really offer nice architecture. It has gotton to modernised, many of the buildings reconstructed and not left in their origional state over the years...

Yes, you are right, Johsam. Oh, when I see the red brick-architecture I get so happy Bedankt voor de foto's )

Do you call it "baksteen" or "brik" ? We say Backsteinhäuser in German..

Gladd you like it

We say baksteen 'brik' is maybe used in some Flemish dialects borrowed from the French 'brique'
Backsteinhäuser --> Bakstenen huizen

Where do you live? The region next to mine in Holland and Germany you can find the same style of historic brick housing...

nice town and the gothic cathedral is impressive.
BTW, what's the English name of the town if any?
