I never tought I would be able to visit this building. Located in the center of a big Belgian city with lots of people passing by, it wasn't easy to get inside without being noticed. But just a small back door was unlocked and we got lucky.
The building is abandoned since 2003 with a rich history behind it. Build in 1531 it's been burned down two times, once in 1583 and in 1858. The main hall was the most important trading ground in the world during it's time but now it lays in ruins. Right now it's in the hands of a dutch company, still waiting to be rebuild... but without any progress in the past 5 years.
