Brikett factory Louise (The oldest brikett factory of Europe)

This old factory is a real gem. Started in 1882 with 2 presses and 4 disc dryers it is the oldest briquette factory in Europe. Later the factory was expanded several times until On 18 november 1991 the last briquette was produced after wich the factory was closed. In 1992 it became an industrial monument.
The factory was powered by steam. All the old machinery is still in place which gives you a unique feeling when walking around. It'a a great place to visit with a very friendly staff.
