Winter Circus

This former winter circus and hippodrome was founded in 1894 by order of the Cercle Equestre in Belgium. In 1920 it was destroyed by fire, only the facade was preserved. Winter Circus was not only used as a circus, but also for revues, variety shows and film screenings. After the last circus (1944), the Nouveau Cirque finally closed its doors.

From 1947, the area was used as an antique car collector garage and was the most beautiful car of the town. Since the closure in 1978 of the garage, there have been several ambitious projects, but there he stands, empty …, so beautiful and asking to be photographed. Finally restoration begins in 2014.
