A sunday afternoon walk in Grimbergen

Grimbergen village centre with abbey church

Today we went for a walk in Grimbergen, the northern suburb of Brussels that despite its closeby location of our capital still has kept a Flemish rural village charachter. That was a real pleasant surprise to this girl here full of prejudices against Brussels.

We walked around the abbey of the Norbertijnen where they originally brewed the Grimbergen beer (that is currently brewed by Alken-Maes, my employer). A little further on our walk we discovered 2 water mills along a little creek and some old castles ! Very cool!!

A warning for the local wildlife....

... Which was looking very threatening
