You cannot visit Lier without having spotted the “Fortuin” house. This very beautiful building has become one of the symbols of the city of Lier. It is situated on the “Felix Timmermansplein , 7”. It was built with bricks and natural stone and then painted white. It probably dates from the 17th century, but was adapted in the 18th century. It used to be originally a storage place for wheat and grain. Later it became a place to store coal, a lemonade factory, a workshop and since its restoration between 1962 and 1965, a restaurant. Would it not be nice to have our “Lierse Vlaaikens” on the floating terrace or in the garden next the house?
