The 'Groot Vleeshuis' was built between 1407 and 1419. Belgium meat houses were covered markets where the meat trade was centralised in order to check the meat's freshness and quality. City laws prohibited private sales at home. Sixteen 'tripe stalls' were built onto the south-eastern side of the Groot Vleeshuis between 1542 and 1543. For reasons of hygiene, these separate small shops had to be used for the sale of entrails, skin, and other remains from slaughtered animals.

Hello Jacquie, I've described above how the building got its name.
Thank you for your visit.

This building is stunning, despite its name...

Jaklien

Today it has been turned into a large cafe with a few craft shops. Very cozy.

Very pretty building, too pretty for a meat house!

Jaklien

With appropriate lighting and good company, everything is romantic, isn't it?

Who would have thought an old Meathouse could look so romantic at night? Fabulous thank you
