    Concert of Helmut Lotti on the Fri-days in 2002...


    Every year, on the market square they hold the so called Fri-days. This means that every Friday evening there is a concert from national and international bands. This event is free and is going on from end of June till end of August. Check the website for the bands. See for pictures of some concerts in my travelogue please...

    Every year during the summer months we have a Sidewalk Cafe Theatre on the Market Place. This is a competition between several theatre groups during several weeks. It's always fun and artistic together with a nice (alcoholic) drink...

    Mother Mary watching over her child ... and us

    Maybe this tip gets boring, but it's just something that should be mentioned in all Belgian town and villages. Be aware of the details when you're walking over the streets in this Catholic country. Statues of holy figures, preferably holy mother Mary, are watching over you constantly and from many angles. It's so charming and wonderful that the keep on being in the scenery. I just love this.
