Snowing in Brussels

2009 so far has brought us some unusually cold weather that has swept for a week now all over Europe. Some cities of Belgium have even broken records for the lowest temperatures of the last decade. The cold wave did not only bring negative aspects though as it dramatically changed for a brief moment our Brussels landscape blessing it with a beautiful coat of white snow.  Wanting to capture this special moment I took my camera out early in the morning after work to take these photos of Brussels under the snow.

I doubt the Villo! bikes rentals will be very popular today

Cars covered in snow

Entering what seems to be a deserted Georges Henri Park

Not much more people here either

The monument dedicated to political prisoners seems even more eerie

A few Bruxellois were actually found braving the cold weather

  1. These pictures are great! The citu looks amazing with snow. I do hope this winter will be equally generous and I get to make snowy Brussels pictures myself. 🙂
