A well known location that has been covered a zillion of times.
Still it's simply an amazing place that you should have seen, if you ask me.

A little bit of history;
The Chambre du Commerce, or Chambre of Commerce in English, has been renovated in 1872 in late Neo-Gotic style. The original building was built in 1531 and carried the name "Mother of all exchanges". The renovation was done due to the fact that the original building burned down twice. Once in 1583 and the second time in 1858.
The architect of the renovation was Joseph Schadde, who was a famous Belgian architect that designed a dozen of other very prominent buildings, including some churches and castles.

The building has been empty for years and they are currently starting the renovation and hopefully this building will once be restored to it's former beauty....

When we visited this place, I was simply amazed by it's beauty and it was difficult to make proper pictures with so many beautiful details.
I simply got distracted by this overload of amazingness.

Anyhow, here are some of the pic's I took:
