Labyrinth school (BE)

The ‘Labyrinth School’ in Belgium is a very well known abandoned place for urbexers and the place is well photographed. The main goal for this mission was to see the amazingly long corridors as well as finding the old stroller in the attic. The place was under demolition or reconversion when we entered the place so it might be gone now for all I know. We crawled through a small hole in a hedge and made our way to the first building. Ahead we saw a couple of vans with workers blocking the road. We first thought of sneaking past them, but we went for the “walk right past them” method like we were supposed to be there. That worked. We walked straight past them, said hello, and carried on. They didn’t even look at us.

The place used to be a farming school for children. They started the plans for building in 1910 but it was delayed because of the outbreak of World War 1. But in the 1926 it was finished. Here children could learn about carpentry, basketry, cut and seam, agriculture and livestock. Between the buildings was gardens and the long corridors ensured that the students could walk inside between the different functions such as classrooms, kitchens, workshops, gymnasiums, greenhouses and an educational farm.

  1. What I always find impressive in your explorations is the presence of objects (especially the most common ones), abandoned in the rooms, just like here: framed pictures, a pram, a sort of big logbook. I would collect samples: did you find any chalk there? By the way, that blackboard is worth some installation in an Art Galley.
