This week Joachim, me and 2 more friends went camping aaaaaaaaaaaall the way down South around the French/Luxembourg border. It would be a real shame to drive that far and NOT visit any of the interesting sites there wouldn’t it? So we picked out 2 locations that looked promising and were close to each other and the camping (we found out the hard way that 34km in bird’s eye is NOT the same as driving 34km in the car…), being this old electricity plant and the blast furnaces of Terre Rouge.
This building was extremely moshed up by vandals (it’s near Southern Belgium, what did you expect?), which is a real shame. The plant provided power for industial and domestic use. With the closing of many factories and mines in the area, Centrale Thermique was forced to stop it’s activities too.
