Parc de Bruxelles, Brussels

(600+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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. For Parc de Bruxelles and beyond, use our Brussels tour planner to get the most from your Brussels vacation.

  • Came here looking for a fountain where Peter the Great reportedly threw up. Despite it being a quite small park we didn't find the fountain or the memorial plaque!  more »
  • My fiancé & I had a brief walk through this park. We were a bit disappointed with it, as there were no notable water features, flower displays or animals. Furthermore, we found a small cafe, but there...  more »
  • Not as great as some, and seems to may have been a part of the Royal Palace. It is a nice place to walk around and spend some time, however there are some much better ones.  more »

  • Where: Brussels Park - Brussels What: A park in the city in front of Palais de Bruxelles How was it: It was well maintained, clean and quaint. It's not a main attraction, but nice to walk around when visiting that area. It's just a walk across the street from the Palais de Bruxelles. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 3 Recommend: Yeah, like we said, it's no main attraction but nice to visit when you are in that part of town.
  • Very lovely park to spend a minute or read a book. Younger people gather there because there's a lot of pokemon to be caught. At night though it's mainly a cruising spot for guys.
  • During summer and in some occasions looks for events in the total park. One can read about franc-maçon inspiration about the design of the map of the park. In the middle of the lunch jog breakers you can eat your sandwich a stone away for great museums. And more ...
  • Nice Warande park in the center of Brussels, there are fountains and benches to relax and have your picnic.
  • A lovely park. Have been there twice with 5 years difference and it was just as chilled and safe as it was in 2010. Love the peace, fountains and the shadow in summer from the trees
