Barontoo: It's a pity but I have to archive this cache. It disappears to much. Anyway, this place is worth a visit if you are coming to Brussels. Thanks to everybody who searched for this cache. Hope you enjoyed the sight over Brussels.

Geocache Description:

After visiting London where I found several caches, I thought that Brussels needs also some more traditional caches. Hope you will like this one.

Bigger in area than St. Peter’s in Rome, the Brussels’ Law Courts were built in neo-classical style using the profits of colonialism, and completed in 1833. Victor Hugo called it “the large inkpot”. The impressive structure rules the Brussels skyline and can be seen from almost any vantage point in the city. The entrance is free, so if you have 5 minutes, just enter the hall, you will be impressed.

Next to this building, on the place Poelaert (named after the architect of the Law Courts), you have a panoramic view on the city and nearby you will see a bizarre lift that lands in the very heart of the “Marolles”.

But before using that lift (open from 7:00 till 24:00), look for the cache. You will need to be discreet while retrieving and replacing it because of all the foot traffic along this section.

The cache contains only a logbook, so please bring your own pen or pencil. When replacing the stash, make sure it is protected from the elements just as you found it.
