Urbex – Alla Italia

Abandoned thermal institute somewhere in Belgium. I wouldn’t have called this place Alla Italia, but the urbex community loves to give strange nicknames to the abandoned places, so the guy who found that place called it Alla Italia.

Urbex – Grand Hôtel Regnier

Abandoned hotel somewhere in Belgium. This luxury hotel has been built around 1904 and must have been really majestic in its time.

The local ice hockey team was training there as one can guess by looking at the the floor of the rink.

I don’t know much about it, but it seems to have been part of a school complex which is being demolished at the moment. Fortunately, it seems that the swimming pool won’t be demolished.

Urbex – Villa Cannaert

Abandoned hotel/restaurant somewhere in Belgium. I visited this place early in the morning of a beautiful winter day. It was a luxury place, a four star hotel/restaurant if I believe the placard in front of the street. It has seen many well-known people, including the king of Belgium himself.
