    Tervuren is a large park (think forest) in the south of Brussels. It is the home of the former summer residence of the Royal family, now turned into The Royal Museum for Central Africa (see pic). The wonderfully arranged lawns, canals, and walking alleys offer a breath of fresh air and create an atmosphere of serenity and tranquility seldom encountered in a capital city.

    Belgian is a Federal State, a Kingdom, independent since October 4th, 1830.
    The National Day is July 21st (Ascension of King Leopold to the throne in 1831).

    GO TO THE ROYAL GREENHOUSES IN LAKEN : their architectural décor is splendid, and the botanical gardens are very interesting for botanists and plants/flowers lovers. Open sometimes in summer time.

    At 3 minutes walk from there : CHINESE PAVILION (from 1901-1909) opposite the JAPONESE TOWER : collection of paintings and japonese subjects.

    PARKS AND GARDENS.
    You couldn't imagine how many green areas you'll find in Brussels ?! This is one of the cities with the greatest amount of green space per inhabitant : 27.7 square metres ! When you live in a so big city : green space is very important.

    I suggest you these nice parks : BOIS DE LA CAMBRE (Ixelles), BRUSSELS PARK (in front of the Royal Palace), EGMONT PARK (Sablon), JOSAPHAT PARK (Schaerbeek, large collection of sculptures - in september 'Donkey Feast'), WOLUWE PARK (picture)

    This was a nice park in the middle of the city where we slept off the booze from the cruise over. Just figured I'd include it for your viewing pleasure. Check me out, representing the Yanks back in '96.

    I remembered our visit to the studio of "Honey I shrinked the kids" when arriving to Brussels. Easy to understand why, when we see the decoration of Europe square. Imaginative, indeed!

  • Take a walk in a park

    La Cambre Park

    Brussels has a few parks, but they're quite beautiful and relaxing. If you have some time on your hands, enjoy one of these nature corners and the tranquility they can offer you.

    Auderghem: full of green

    Auderghem

    Bruxelles is not a very pleasant place to live, but there are places that are unexpected in green and light and open space. At least in the rare sunny days...
