A great piece of architecture just outside the Central Station facing the Astridplein. Nice place to hang out and appreciate the beauty even if theatres are not your cup of tea.

A two day conference took place in this brand new venue. It has anything you want from small conference rooms up to a really large and excellent central hall. Also the space in the ground floor is good for an exhibition and drinks reception.

The concert hall is under restauration now untill 2014 at least. When this will be finished; it will be hopefully, again the best concert hall in Belgium. My last visit date is not applicable because the concert hall was closed for renovation.
