Art Deco Soccer Stadium

Located in the St Gilles section of Brussels is a stadium that opened back in 1919 and is now known as Marien Stadium. The "stade" was also used during the 1920 Olympics, which were mostly held in the northern Belgian city of Antwerpen. This art deco style stadium is now a listed building, which will keep the city from tearing it down, as it has many other historic buildings in the past - namely some beautiful art nouveau buildings by Victor Horta.

Today you can visit the stadium, enjoy the excellent food and Belgian traditional beers there, and also catch a soccer game. It is now the home of Union, a 3rd division team.
