Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
The Viking and I had come to Thuin with one goal in our minds: to see the “Jardins Suspendus”, literally the Hanging Gardens. The local tourist information office gave us the necessary information in French and Dutch.
When we left the belfry, we soon found ourselves in steep and narrow cobbled streets. We felt transported back in time; the hustle and bustle of the center was gone. In order to have access to the gardens, we had to go to a place called Posty Bury.
As I have told you before, there have been many wars in this region. Thus it is no surprise that Thuin was surrounded by fortifications or “postys”. Posty Bury is such a fortification. Right next to it, you have another superb view on the region of Thuin. And a passage in the Posty Bury leads you to one of the most picturesque places I have ever seen in Belgium.
