I visited this in the early evening after returning to Liege from Cheratte, and left around sunset. It is an old fort. Again my first visit, despite once having lived within easy walking distance. It was deserted throughout my visit, and access was easy. A few parts were recently demolished, but the best bits are still standing.

The main attraction of the place for me was the murals, a selection of which is shown below. Enjoy.

First floor rooms. They have some interesting murals, mostly cartoons, painted by the Belgian soldiers who were stationed there.

The second floor looked dodgy and I didn't want to risk falling through it, so after exploring the first floor I descended.

Ground floor corridor.

The murals on the ground floor are tableaux rather than cartoons.

No smoking. This is the door to a small prison block.

There were other buildings I explored which were less interesting, as well as larger modern buildings I didn't explore at all.
