Parc de Bruxelles, Brussels

3.8
#5 of 16 in Parks in Brussels
Wander among trees, fountains, and statuary, and admire the buildings bordering Parc de Bruxelles, the largest urban park in Brussels. The neoclassical park touts manicured lawns and flowerbeds dotted with sculpted bushes and elegant fountains. It was once part of the gardens for the original Coudenberg palace in the 18th century. Nowadays the Royal Palace of Brussels, the parliament, and the United States Embassy mark the boundaries of the park, along with a large fence and fragrant rows of lime trees. Statues throughout the park pay tribute to international figures, such as Peter the Great and a slew of Roman emperors and mythical characters. You'll find the park's main entrance on the northern side across from the parliament building. With our international travel planner, Brussels attractions like Parc de Bruxelles can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    Nice Park to cross during the visit of the city, very relaxing to go through after a good walk

    It is a haven of peace in the middle of the city. For enthusiasts, the Park of the 18th century, offers a fun game of alchemical and Masonic track...

    As I understand it the Belgians not so keen on the Green: parks are dried stranamenti, scurries up the sand, the plants and flowers are not maintained and are often dirty. In short, the potential is there, but are not developed. I visited exceptional parks in Mediterranean countries where it hasn't rained for months and don't really have money to maintain them, so these here Belgians I was very disappointed.

    This park has a mini park inside for kids with swings,slides and a sand pit. My two year old loves it there. There are no dogs allowed in this area. Great for young kids. It is close to the large fountain.

    A semi-nice park. I really appreciated the free water bottle fountain. The park was very lively and seemed fun. However, some of the statues were abused (for example: spray painted red steaks near the eyes) and there was a lot of trash everywhere.

    DOV:20Feb2014 BrusselsPark / ParkVanBrussels is a beautiful park in Brussels just opposite to the royal palace. This has many acres of land, has full greenery. There is also a good kids park inside. You can spent many hours here along with the royal palace and palace of academies. The major facility that is lacking here especially 4 tourists is restrooms which was not there when I visited.

    Interesting to chill with a beer. Sometimes events are hold in the Parc and it becomes a very interesting place.
