Bois de la Cambre and Foret de Soignes, Brussels
(4.8/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • If you are in the Ixelles area and would like to go for a walk/run, Bois de La Cambre is unique. Situated in the middle of a big city, this park offers a genuine getaway from the urban environment. 
  • It is a beautiful park that is half in the Woods and half the Park. I recommend you go to the Lake in the evening to spend a nice evening in the restaurant on the island, but it is a little pricey.

  • Living near the wood of la Cambre and possessing a dog we will walk all day to the woods of la Cambre we do around the Lake and it's all day a delight because the forest changes with the seasons. Sometimes we go up to the Abbey of la Cambre, which is also very beautiful to discover.
