The three best known towers of Ghent: the St Niklaaskerk (St Nicolas Church), het Belfort (the Belfry) and Sint Baafs (St Bavo) hidden by the special Christmas Wheel. To the left you can see part of the Christmas market on the Koornmarkt.

To help you find the towers the bus is leading you along.

Swans and ducks were enjoying a beautiful night!

Located nearby Dinant, Freyr is one of the most reknowed places for climbing in Belgium.

 

For those of you who are looking this picture on a decent screen, you can zoom in to see the climbers on the rock...

The gates of the Béguinage are closed at 6,30pm every night and no public is allowed to enter it after that hour. This means it is very exceptional to see and feel the atmosphere of a night at the Béguinage.

Beguinages were closed courtyards where widows and unmarried women led a religiously inspired but independent life. Self-rule occurred under the leadership of a ‘grand dame’ (grootjuffrouw).

The beguines supported themselves by weaving, making lace or embroidering. They took a vow of purity and obedience but not of poverty. There was great harmony between the spiritual and material life. They could leave the beguinage whenever they wished.

The Lier beguinage was created in 1258. It is a typical 13th century street beguinage comprising 11 alleys and 162 houses.

Various places in the beguinage remind us of author and painter Felix Timmermans, who found much of his inspiration here.

Agnes, the last beguine of Lier, died in 1994.

In 1998 the Lier beguinage, together with 12 other beguinages in Belgium, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Best to be viewed in large size format.

 

Detail of the next picture. I was standing at the same place, but look how the perspective changed by simply zooming in on the left half of the scene.
