    Hof van Buren Tervuren

    This should have been the farm of the Robiano castle, which is juxtaposed. Although the Robianocastle goes back to the 15th century, this gate dates from 1741.
    It is some steps away from the Voer river's source. The Voer which gaves its name to Tervuren as Ter-Vure meant at the Voer.

  • The Arboretum

    arboretum Tervuren

    This is a one-of-a-kind arboretum !

    They have over 400 different tree species, including boreal, west and east North America, Europe, Asia and some auracaria trees from Chile.

    It's an ideal place for walking, so buy yourself a guide and take the 7 km tour or you can explore the arboretum on your own.

    Guides are for sale at the Touristic Info Desk at the marketplace in Tervuren for 3 euro or buy the specialised tree guide for 25 euro.

    Tervuren Park

    Dave in Tervuren Park

    As well as the Royal Museum for Central Africa, Tervuren has an excellent park. Some of it is formal - including a huge ornamental canal, surrounded by sloping lawns - but there are lakes and woodlands too. And of course the massive Forest de Soinges.

    Statues in the Warande Park

    Statues in the Warande of Tervuren

    Throughout the park you will discover several statues. The most valuable one I am told is the one where the father is killing his daughter to save the honour of the family.

    The Parkpoort pump :-)

    The Water pump

    Your horse is thirsty ? Then this is the place to be :-)
    Of course this waterpump has been very helpful to the 19th century horses. Nowadays it is only here as a decorative element.

    The Central Africa Museum at Tervuren

    Fascinating museum about central African history, art, culture, anthropology etc.

    Set on the edge of a beautiful park, the tram ride here is also memorable.
