    Royal Parc

    Royal Parc in Brussels

    Favorite thing: Just a few minutes away from the center you'll find the Royal Parc. It's right opposite the Palace of Nation. Not many people come here, so it's usually nice and quiet. Not only is there enough green to enjoy, but there are also many sculptures. The parc was an important site in the late 18th century and the early 19th century. The Belgians fought the Dutch there, which led to the separation of Belgium from Holland. And also Napoleon visited the parc to have dinner in the Waux Hall.

    Favorite thing: THE ROYAL PARK

    The entire area of the royal park and the royal square is situated on the site where the medieval court of Brabant used to stand. This enormous palace dated from the 11th century when the duke of Brabant left his 'castrum' in the centre of the city. A new castle was built on the so-called 'Koudenberg' at the edge where the higher part of Brussels stops and the lower part begins.
