Abandoned City Of Doel

Posted on 1 1 m read

Doel is an abandoned village in Belgium in the East Flanders at 30 kilometers from Antwerp. In the early 70s, Doel had a population of around 1,300. Apart from a nuclear power plant, because of the port’s northbound expansion plans, the authorities proclaimed a « house building freeze », obliging people to leave the village in 1999. In spite of actions by protest groups and local politicians, the Flemish regional government signed the village’s death. In 2015, there are now around 10 inhabitants, living in a ghost city. The town became a paradise for graffiti artists. Graffiti covers almost every available surface and the city became a no man’s land for artists. With some cars in the street for tourism reasons, vandalism and looting is commonplace, despite stepped-up police patrols.

    First of all, you have done a marvellous job on this website! Unfortunately, the pictures take a long time to completely load, which probably prevents many people from posting a comment. That said, I can’t understand why governments do not tear down useless and abandoned places like this. Other than the novelty of exploration for people like you, some homeless people, and some artists, this place is utterly useless. Your pictures are quite good. However, the graffiti artwork in this city is some of the worst I’ve ever seen!
