Brussels Excursions

I took an excursion from the Brussels Marriott that is brand new -- called the Hidden Treasures of Belgium. The tour guide was superb, a native of Walloon (French-speaking) Belgium, where we went.  We first saw the Castle of Modave (2 photos), then with a few stops we stopped at the citadel at Namur (1 photo), then to the Cistercian abbey of Villers, my favorite, 800 years old.  Since I took about 60 pictures of the latter it was hard to pick on since it is a huge complex of buildings.

    Beautiful photos, Professor!  Thanks!

     

    Yesterday, I booked a room in Namur for my last night in Brussels!  Should be a very nice hotel... it's a former tannery where they have connected eleven 17th century buildings.  Looking forward to it!

    Great choice, NewHilton!  The citadel is up on a large hill, but I think there's a tram.  And the seventeenth-century surrounding buildings should be a perfect treat (don't forget to have a good meal!) before heading home via Brussels!

    Hi Professor,

     

    I plan on having good meals every night of my vacation!  Laughing

     

    I've make a reservation at my hotel's restaurant in Namur for my last dinner.  Both of their restaurants look very nice and get rave reviews!
