And so we reach the old harbour quarter north of the center: Het Eilandje, or The Island.

142.


143.


144.


145. The harbour authorities recently start building a new head quarter on top of this old fire station. It's designed by Zaha hadid.



146.


147.


The main attraction is the new city museum: MAS, designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects.

You can book a guided tour in the tower, but only on wednesday afternoon. A good fysical condition is a must.

I didin't climb the tower yet, but it seems a great idea. I love the steep steps in medieval towers.

Well, something like that...
No seriously, Belgium is known as a grey and wet country, somewhat like the United Kingdom, north of France, Holland and Denmark. But of course there are more sunny days than can be expected.
