Mini Europe Tips (39)


Mini-Europe is like Madurodam in The Netherlands; the Belgian version is more interesting for European people. Listen to the national anthems of all EU-countries and visit the exhibition at the end; it's something you will never forget.

Be a Giant for a Day!

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.

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

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.

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.

Mini-Europe - the London 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 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 !
