Last weekend Ingrid and Lars from Cosy Travels and I visited visited the abandoned horror-themed restaurant 't Spookhuys, also known as House of 1000 Spirits. Rattling chandeliers, smoking ceilings and moving paintings once decotated this place. Transvestite draculas, illusionists and devil-worshiping dancers entertained the guests while they ate mud pie out of a skull. Rumor has it satanic rituals were held in this house in order to leave angry spirits to roam the premises. Finding 't Spookhuys was a challenge since our GPS indicated that the address was non-existent. Although we didn't see any ghosts or demons around the abandoned restaurant, the place had something unsettling.
The restaurant closed its doors in 2008, but can still be visited at Steenweg op Gierle 441 in Turnhout, Belgium.
