    bourse

    Favorite thing: Thanks to Marie-Claude from Montreal I finally know what I am presenting here as a impressive old building in Brussels....well, it is the bourse. I only passed by that building by public bus and took this snap shot quickly. It is a bit funny, I think there wer already some belgium people seeing my page but nobody could tell me what it is...;-)) the travellers often know more of a place than the people who live there ;-)

    Favorite thing: see the Bourse (Brussels Stock Exchange). This is the meeting place for the Belgium financial world, and found its way by a decision of July, 8th 1801. The government provided the “haute finance” with a site on its own. In 1860 the thought arose to make a public building that would emphasize the capital’s rights. The foundation stone had been laid down in 1871, and built in a neo-classic style by the plans of the architect “Suys”. The inauguration took place on September the 27th, 1873.

    Favorite thing: Exiting at the north corner to Rue au Beurre, you'll see the yellowish-beige Brussels Stock Exchange, which is open to visitors only on weekdays. The facade is heavily ornamented and surmounted by a dome; its entrance guarded by two huge lions. From here move north-west to explore the Lower Town, the commercial district of the city. Personally, I did not find anything fascinating in this part of the capital.
