NEW PEDESTRIAN ZONE IN BRUSSELS

 August 24, 2015

Since June 29, Brussels has a new pedestrian area. All around "La Bourse" (stock market building) no cars are allowed anymore. The big Boulevard Anspach in front of La Bourse has been closed for cars. Now people can walk around in the middle of the street.

I must admit that it took me a little time to dare to walk on the boulevard. But it is wonderful. Now you can sit on benches, there are also  Picnic tables, and there is no car noise anymore. It is also good for the preservation of the historical buildings in this area.



Instead of cars, you can take a coach and let you drive around






Benches and picnic tables on the street



No danger for bikes anymore



Now it looks like this

About Me

My Photo
I love painting, writing, travelling and photography. My favorit models are my four cats which I observe with fun and humor. I am German, married to an Italian and we live in Waterloo (15 km from Brussels) / Belgium since many years. Waterloo is a famous place to many tourists, because Napoleon lost his battle here against Wellington and other European countries.
