Can't believe this doesn't exist already (couldn't find it at least, though that's not proof I suppose).

So, show us pictures of Brussels...

I'll kick things off, but hopefully have much better examples soon

1. Cigar


2. Sparkle


3. It's here somewhere...


4. My tower's bigger than your tower


5. Little tower


6. Big tower


7. tower detail


8. Haunting


9. Columns



There's nothing more depressing than seeing beauty and failing to do it justice

Simon, I probably should be ashamed an Englishman started this before someone from Belgium

But thanks anyway, I hope we can roam these streets together one day (or evening)

A few days ago we spent some time there, here's some of my impressions:

1: Weird Christmas tree in front of the Munt Theatre


2: Old and new just next to each other


3: One of the many smaller covered "Passages" near the Grand Place


4: Big tower, fitting in a small alley


5: A place for "Pousse-Cafe" after dinner

All A850 + KM 17-35D

nice ones braisim, I like all your different perspectives.

A few from "Palais de Justice" on Place Poelaert. I found this building is fully open to the public and a great photo opportunity:

Judges entrance


Catacombs


Central Hall


High court of Belgium (the only bi-lingual court)

Thanks pegelli. Love your photos of the palais de justice. I'm ashamed to say that I've been living in Brussels for 16 years and I've never visited it! Clearly I'll have to arrange a visit.

Time to show some love to the Brussels thread. Here are a couple I took over the Christmas holidays.




Brussels has a rich architectural heritage. Some of it beautiful, some of it less so. The first picture is the Brussels City administrative building in the centre of town. Some might consider it a little bit 'brutal'.







It's hard to take an original picture of the beautiful Grand Place. I don't think I managed anything original here, but I'm quite happy with this grabbed shot with the moon looking quite nice.

Some more Brussels pictures, this time of the Rouge-Cloître Abbey (French: Abbaye du Rouge-Cloître, Dutch: Rood-Klooster), which is an Augustinian abbey, founded in 1367. It is located in the Sonian Forest, in south-eastern Brussels, Belgium. It was abolished in 1796. Today, it is administered from Auderghem, which is a commune of Brussels.

This area on the edge of the forest, surrounded by lakes through which the Roodkloosterbeek (Rouge-Cloître stream) passes, has been called the Rouge-Cloître estate from the 16th century until the present day. It was used for hunting in the 16th and 17th centuries and today is popular with nature-lovers and ramblers.

This is the miller's house
A77II/CZ16-80



View of the abbey from afar
A77II/DT11-18



View over the lake

A pleasant place for a Sunday afternoon walk in the autumn sunshine.
