Liège is the fourth city in Belgium and has approx. 200.000 inhabitants (600.000 inhabitants incl. suburbs)
In the summer of 2014 and 2016 i visited the city for a daytrip. Here they come:
A. The city hall in the hirstorical city-center.
1. These tower blocks in...
As my last Liège thread was starting to get a bit long and messy, and as I have made a hell of a lot of photos since I last posted in it, I decided to start a new, more structured one.
For readers who don't know, Liège is a the capital of the eastern Belgian province of the same name. It is...
Let's start a thread about cycling in Belgium. The country is rapidly improving its road infrastructure, and the bicycle is often part of reconstruction plans.
Let's start with a new bike bridge across N75 near Genk.

Welcome to my second thread about Belgium, where I will post my favourite photos of the parts of the country which are outside the province of Liège.
This will include both smaller towns which I have visited once, and various instalments on different parts of Brussels (and some of Charleroi). I...
I have greatly enjoyed many photo-posts on SSC in the last few years, so I thought I would return the pleasure to other users by uploading some photos of my own, seeing as I have many of them.
My first post is about Liège, the city (and its province) I have lived in for the past 3 and a half...
Flanders' largest city, home to diamonds and a seaport.

Close-up of the cathedral (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal) tower. Consecrated in 1521, its 2nd tower was never completed...
Liège, Luik, Lüttich, Lîdje: this city has many names and many faces. Liege is a very interesting medieval city, but a modern monstruosity too. Liege has beautiful romanesque chruches and it has grey concrete flats. Contrasts: the Belgians have made them their speciality. The old centre of...
I was in Brussels (as part of a larger western European adventure) for the first time this past July and thought that I'd share my pictures here. They are pretty much all from some of the more touristy areas. I enjoyed my time there, and would definitely return again...

Museum Aan de Stroom (MAS)
FLOORS: 10 floors
ARCHITECT: Neutelings Riedijk Architects
The Museum Aan de Stroom is a museum located in the Eilandje district of Antwerp, Belgium, opened in May 2011.
The site had been the castle of the lords of Heverlee since the 12th century, but this family became impoverished and had to sell the site in 1445 to the Croÿ family from Picardy. Antoon van Croy demolished the medieval castle and started works to build the current castle in 1455 on the site, of...
I have to pause my other threads and start to post pics while still fresh memories from my trip to Brussels and Madrid - both of them were really great. In overall, I spent about 1,5 days in Brussels and 4 days in Madrid and took about 1500 photos from which best part I will try to show here...
For many people, Belgium is just an overpopulated, polluted and boring place between Germany and France where the EU is headquartered. If you think that way too, I hope this thread will prove you wrong :)
This trip-report covers 3 months-worth of trips throughout Belgium, a place I knew little...
