Dranouter, Belgium

This is family park Kosmos Dranouter, located in the south of Belgium. The hotel-restaurant, youth hostel and swimming pool were famous recreation sites in the 1980s. In 1889 the first touristic attraction was build, a watch-tower on top of a hill in the Westouter area. This tower is rebuild after the Second World War, it was destroyed during the fights in the First World War. In 1934 on another hill the hotel-restaurant Kosmos Dranouter was build to attract more tourists. Later an open air swimming pool was opened at the same hill.


In the 1980s more buildings were added to the family park. Schools went on trips to Kosmos and stayed in the youth hostel next to the hotel-restaurant. The buildings and pool were abandoned in 2002. Today the hotel is boarded up, all the other buildings are demolished.
