Brussels 12 and 13 November

by mybruce0520

Dear VTs

What are the tourist spots in Brussels? We are planning to go there on 12 and 13 November.

Thank you very much for the assistance.

If you like old architecture it's the Grand Place. And then marvellous food and excellent beer. But other than that I would say it is going to Antwerpe, Brugge or Gent.

Not only Grand Place is worth seeing for its architecture - Brussels also has a lot of well known Art noveau buildings, notably architect Victor Horta's own house: http://www.hortamuseum.be/main.php?lang=en&part=maison&page=histoire

The Musical instruments museum already mentioned is not only a very nice building with a great view - it has a café with an even better view and the museum itself is one of my favourites in Europe - so many weird musical instruments and well done too.

The art museum is full of famous Flemish artists and such, and then there are the great beer halls indeed. Is there anything special you like doing?

Travel Tips for Brussels

Lace Bobbin History

by iris2002

The origin of lace is difficult to locate in both time and place. Some authors assume that the manufacturing of lace started during Ancient Rome, based on the discovery of small bone cylinders in the shape of bobbins. The Middle-Ages is a period of history where little is known about the manufacture of lace. For firm evidence we have to look back to the fifteenth century when Charles the Fifth decreed that lace making was to be taught in the schools and convents of the Belgian provinces. During this period of renaissance and enlightenment, the making of lace was firmly based within the domain of fashion. To be precise, it was designed to replace embroidery in a manner that could with ease transform dresses to follow different styles of fashion. Unlike embroidery, lace could be unsewn from one material to be replaced on another.

Since these earlier times, many styles and techniques of lacemaking have been developed, almost all of them in the Belgian provinces, which thus deserve to be named the cradle of lace. Today, two main techniques are practiced in the Flemish provinces of Belgium. The first, a needle lace, is still manufactured in in the region of Aalst. It is called Renaissance or Brussels lace because it is mostly sold in Brussels. The second type, the Bobbin Lace, is a speciality of Bruges, a magnificent city located in the west of Belgium. This is a very expensive type of lace to make and is therefore no longer manufactured for commercial purposes.

Lacemaking is an industry which nowadays employs about one thousand lace workers, all of them ladies aged between fifty and ninety years of age. Do not expect to find lace factories in Brussels or Bruges, they do not exist. A visit to the LOUIS VERSCHUEREN LACE FACTORY SHOP

A fine selection of cotton and linen hankies, finished with handmade renaissance or princess lace, following the tradition of Brussels lacemaking.

******************************* TYPES OF LACE **************************************

1. DUCHESS LACE > This type of lace is manufactured on a "carreau" or cushion - taken from the Flemish word "kussen"-, on which the paper pattern is pinned. This pattern is the design to be realized in lace. The lacemaker generally works with 22 bobbins, two of which are called The Conductors.
The more complicated the design, the more bobbins have to be used. For a Binche "Point de F?e" up to 200 bobbins have to be utilized.
The conductor's threads form the weft of the work, while the other bobbins form the warp, or the vertical threads of the design. To make the corner of a handkerchief, the lacemaker will have to work for about three days, depending upon her level of skill.


2. THE ROSEPOINT LACE > This type of lace is made with a needle. It is considered to be the most delicate and precious of all laces. The pattern is first designed on paper, often reinforced with a piece of tissue, on which the design is realized. The design usually represents a rose or some other flower.

3. PRINCESS LACE > This type of lace is still manufactured today and is mainly used for wedding veils, christening dresses, mantillas, and other ceremonial occasions. Nowadays, the net is made by machine. The flowers, stalks, and leaves are applied on the net by hand with a needle. In former times the net was also handmade, either by needle or by bobbins. This handmade net was given the Dutch name " Drochel ".

4. THE RENAISSANCE LACE > Renaissance Lace is also called Brussels Lace or Ribbon Lace. This is the lace that today is manufactured on a larger scale. It is a very strong lace used for house linen, such as, tablecloths, napkins, place mats, doilies, runners etc...

You must go to an outdoor pub...

by Zmrzlina

You must go to an outdoor pub and enjoy a beer. I don't even drink (or really like) beer, but I did in Brussels. The picture shows Market Square and that's a great place for a beer or two...or three... Not many would consider this memory 'fond,' but I will never forget getting caught up with Euro2000 (European Soccer event) the first night I was in Brussels. The riot police where out in full gear, and when a friend and I went to investigate, we found ourselves running with a crowd of revelers celebrating Turkey's win. It was a bit scary, but exhilarating at the same time.

Statue and Bela Bartok

by Luchonda

This statue is located at the "Spanjeplein"
near the Central Station and will guide you to the "Tub" of Brussels - The Great Marketplace ! From this spot you can already see St Michael, the patron of Brussels, high above at the top of the famous City Hall. When i visited this Capital of Belgium in november - the greatest memory was the silence of this City.Practically carless streets
but - as always an overcrowded japanese marketplace.Better look for the surroundings - many greens - parks and musea !
A moment of silence - in a famous Capital

Belgium was Dancing

by BeChar

In the framework of the Belgian double birthday (175-25), Rosas made Belgium dancing on July 16th, 2005, following the principle of Bal Moderne.

After a few repetitions with small groups to check the choreography (Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui & Damien Jalet) and educate some dancers, the choreography on song "Ik hou van U, je t'aime tu sais", was learnt to thousands of people during the same one hour in 12 belgian cities (Ieper, Gent, Leuven, Antwerpen, Hasselt, La Roche, Eupen, Wavre, Liege, Charleroi, Dinant, Brussels).

All the dancers had to be ready at 10.10 pm for a direct broadcast on TV. This evening also suggested two other choreographies and played many Belgian hits to dance further.

see the impressive European Parliament buildings.

If you happen to be hanging around this place during office hours/ lunch time, I'm sure you can also feel the air of bustling efficiency here. 'Tis true. And in case this has slipped your mind, Brussels is also the Headquarters of the European Union and it's here that you can rub shoulders with lots of civil servants, bureaucrats and Eurocrats!
