On the way to the upper town, Mr Monkey found that he could use the Galerie Ravenstein as a shortcut from the Gare Centrale to the Rue Ravenstein. He was impressed by the glass roof, and scampered up several flights of stairs to the higher road. Further up the Rue Ravenstein, he had a quick look into the courtyard of the Hôtel Ravenstein. This was built as a town house for the Cleves-Ravenstein family, and was the birthplace of Anne of Cleves. Part of it is a restaurant now, and the rest is the headquarters of the Royal Society of Engineers.
