Bois de la Cambre and Foret de Soignes, Brussels

(4.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Hike, bike, or picnic at Bois de la Cambre and Foret de Soignes, a garden that feels like a wild place thanks to the irregular placement of trees and bushes. The park resembles English gardens, but was designed by a German architect. A number of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, and even pony rides allow you to tour the attraction in an active way. Or, you can simply bring along a blanket and lunch on the lawns. Along the walking trails you'll find some of the ruins of early Brussels, and it is not uncommon to run into a group of eager children learning about the great outdoors. Arrange your visit to Bois de la Cambre and Foret de Soignes and discover more family-friendly attractions in Brussels using our Brussels trip builder.

  • The Bois de la Cambre, one of the most popular public parks of Brussels. Created in 1860, he became very famous when royalty began to use its main roads. To the start of the Avenue Roosevelt, towards the right, is the entrance to the forest, adorned with the Group sculptural ' fight of Knights ', of Lalaing (1885). Has an important heritage tree and in the part South is unites with the forest of Soignes, that comes to Waterloo.
