Parc de Bruxelles, Brussels

3.8
#5 of 16 in Parks in Brussels
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • The Parc de Bruxelles is just a park with paths and trees. Nothing very interesting. If you are in a hurry straight pass.

  • It is beautiful. It gives to sit awhile to rest after touring the city. Buy a stracciatella ice cream and discarded on the grass to relax.

  • 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.
  • Cool place to chill. See nice architecture, and sometimes have a drink :)

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
