Forges de Clabecq

On a grey sundaymorning we jumped on a train heading for this beauty of a location. After a short walk and some waiting for a quite moment, we were able to sneak in. First impression is pretty overwhelming: you’re standing at the feet of the biggest and highest blast furnace of Belgium. Metal structures of over 100 meter high and metal pipelines everywhere you look. Apart from the overwhelming views, this location is also incredibly big. We had to rush to see it all in one day, and I’m 100% sure we skipped at least a quarter of the location! Not to mention the fact that only half of the original furnace remains today… (oh yeah, before I forget: if you want to visit this location, hurry up, it’s being demolished!). Overall a great location!
