In Belgium: Interesting places have good beer
Like many places of interest in Belgium, you would often find that they also have their own brand of beer.
This is the case at the Notre Dame a la Rose hospital, and now museum. Other than an fascinating building with 800 years of history, you can all chill out before or after a look around at their cafe where coffee, tea, beer, etc. is served, as well as some delicious food.
Whenever I visit an old castle, palace or other place here in Europe, I always anticipate the part of the tour where I will end up in the library. There are few other things that excite me more than the books, a comfortable chair to read them, a desk or writing table.
The one in Notre Dame a la Rose was no exception. Most of the books, over 100 years old, had to do with the medical and pharmaceutical fields.
You can keep your kindle and reading on your ipad; give me a comfortable chair and a good book any day.
