Railway station 'Halte Royale d'Ardenne', Houyet (Belgium)

These are the remains of train station 'Halte Royale d'Ardenne', which was built by order of King Leopold II to allow the jet set to easily get to his luxury hotel.

The first guests arrived at this station in 1898, and the last train stopped here in 1919. In 1949 - after two world wars - the hotel closed its doors and in 1968 the abandoned hotel burned down.

Only the station, with its tower and spiral path, can still be seen and are silent witnesses of the glory days.

The photo was taken by me on October 31th 2018.
