    Vleeshuis - not so old as it looks

    In WW I, Lier was so heavily damaged that there were only two buildings that survived... our beloved St-Gummaruskerk and the city hall.
    Even the St-Pieterskapel, still called the oldest building of Lier, is rebuild. Maybe the biggest mistake they made, is the Vleeshuis on the Grote Markt. Originally it was a normal house, after the war they gave it a gothic look.

    Unique Suggestions: The best thing to do... don't think about it. I bet that even most of the locals don't know this. Just enjoy the beautiful architecture, they build it up quiet authentic.

  • The merge of the rivers

    Nete - Lier

    The tourist office placed a sign to indicate the merge of the rivers 'Kleine Nete' and 'Grote Nete' to the river 'Nete'.
    Unfortunaly, they placed it wrong... some 100 meter in fact!

    Unique Suggestions: How to go to the merge :

    leave the beguinage on the Vesten
    turn left till the little bridge

    that point is the real merge
    the 'Kleine Nete' comes floats under the bridge, the 'Grote Nete' runs next to it

    the sign you'll find if you turn right on the bridge, after 100 m you'll see another bridge over a river... there you'll find the sign
    the water floating under this bridge is a canal digged in the beginning of the 20th century

    I think it's funny that a touristic office doesn't really know basic stuff about their city.... shame on them!
