This visit during Covid-19 to Zomergem (Lievegem), this is allowed in Belgium at the moment

My bike ride went past Zomergem a village in East Flanders.

City house:

The current town hall of Zomergem was built in 1923. The previous one (from 1870) was destroyed in 1918. Its strategic position along the Schipdonk Canal made the town a true disaster zone during the final offensive in October 1918. The current town hall was designed by the Ghent architect Valentin Vaerwyck (Dendermonde courthouse, province hall in Ghent and restoration of the Ghent belfry). He was strongly inspired by the town hall he built for the "Modern Village" of the 1913 World Exhibition in Ghent. The high substructure and the double landing staircase give the whole a clear official character. Protected in 1995.

I hope you like it.
