    Bruparck map

    At the Heysel area, near the big Atomium Monument, you also can visit the Bruparck.

    There are several activities that you can do here.

    There is the big cinema complex Kinepolis with 24 (I think) halls and an IMAX theatre.

    There is the Oceade, a tropical water paradise.

    There is Mini-Europe, where you can see Europe’s most important buildings and Landmarks in scaled models.

    There is the Village, a complex of cafes and restaurants, built as an old Belgium village.

  • Atomium

    The Atomium - that's me on the right side ;-)
    1 more image

    The Atomium is a really nice place to visit.

    This monument is the symbol of the Brussels world fair of 1958.
    The Atomium is the visual representation of the concept of an atom. It presents an iron crystal with its 9 atoms. The architect was André Waterkeyn.

    The elevator takes you to the upper sphere where you can enjoy a view of the Heysel area (Mini-Europe, Océane,...) so as over the city of Brussels - if the weather is good :-).
    In the other spheres are different expositions organized.

    The opening hours: from 10 a.m. till 5.30 p.m. and from April to August 'till 7.30 p.m.

    Be a Giant for a Day!

    by cruisingbug Written Jan 18, 2004
    Mini-Europe and Atomium, Brussels

    At Bruparck, you can feel like a giant as you wander around "Mini-Europe". Tiny replicas of famous landmarks around the continent are presented in intricate detail - from Brussels' Grote Markt to the Parthenon in Athens! Looking back at these pictures from 1991, I realize how few of these landmarks I've seen in person - I have a lot of traveling to do!
    Back then, admission was about US$10. Probably higher now. Also, don't get this confused (as I tend to in my memories) with the Hague's Madurodam. Same general concept.

    Mini-Europe

    This is quite a cool place which feature famous buildings from all the EC countries on a 1:25 scale. It has all the big landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Berlin Wall etc and some of them have working features such as Mount Vesuvius which erupts when you walk past and the ground shakes beneath you.

    Mini Europe

    by Synch_X Updated Oct 19, 2003
    Mini Grand Place from Brussels

    Located at the foot of the Atomium, Mini-Europe is the only park where you can have a whistlestop tour around Europe in a few short hours. A truly unique journey!

    Stroll amidst the typical ambiance of the most beautiful towns of the old continent. The incomparable chimes of Big Ben welcome you to the heart of London. The gondolas and the mandolins will invite you to discover the charms of Venice. Follow the T.G.V. from Paris to the other end of France. You can make the models work yourself (there are buttons to press): the eruption of Vesuvius, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the bullfight in Seville and many more ... In total 300 models and sites in a quite unequalled craftsmanship.

    Please take a look to my travelogue on Mini Europe, it has a few more pictures of those great models.

    Prices (in Euros): Adults 11,50 Children (under 12) 8,50.

    Italy in Belgium? Pisa in Brussels?

    Take a look at Mini-Europe if you are in the Brussels area. You can get a taste of all of Europe's treasures. Take some pictures and show your friends, sometimes they will believe you were actually at all these places in Europe, my friend did.

    Bruparck

    by oyabes Updated Sep 14, 2003

    Bruparck and the atomium are the symbols of the city. it is fun to visit here because you can find lots inside to do.there is a big aquapark which you would regret not getting in if you didn't bring your swimming wear. many restaurants and mini Europe park. if you didn't have the chance to see all over Europe, you can see most visited places of every european union country inside. well, they are just models of course and don't give the taste of real travel but at least you would have an idea. my favourite one was France and spain. it's a pity that they haven't put anything from Istanbul, yet. Istanbul is worth to be there!!!!

    Mini Europe

    One of the places I enjoyed most in Brussells was visiting Mini Europe, on my first ever trip to Europe.
    Sure, it rained non stop and the day was grey, but I had a great time with my friend.
    Famous buildings from all over Europe are included, such as the Sacre Coeur church in Paris, and the leaning tower of Pisa.
    Here is part of Mini Europe with the Atomium in the background.

    houses of parliament

    We´ve never been in London together, but now we have a photo with Cecilia in front of the parliament ;-) Fantastic work, one of the best works for me here in Mini-Europe....

    Take your time to read a bit of the information a little guide book gives. You can get it in several languages at the entrance.

    Open from 9:30 to 17:00, have a closer look at the website

    mini europe

    Mini-Europe is an outdoor museum that shows many of the most interesting notable buildings in Europe at only 4% of their size. There are some interactive highlights and many photo opportunities. As a non-European you can learn alot about these building because they also give you a booklet to read while you are taking your walk on the path. It also gives you a somewhat good idea of which other parts of Europe you may want to visit.

    MINI EUROPE is a miniature world displaying models of major events in the history of Europe. Some are hands-on such as the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Visitors can make it happen. There are even scaled down replicas of the Channel Tunnel and the Ariane rocket !

    Just next to the atomium.
    Here you find famous and important buildings from all over europe in repliks in 1:25 dimension. It´s for children as for a adults a very interesting place. There´s a little bit animation in some models like the belling Big Ben, a starting Ariane rocket and other sounds.
