Parc de Bruxelles, Brussels

(3.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • very nice for a walk and o sit as well for relaxation. Choose a sunny day and spend an hour walking and chiilling.Find a good spot on the grass to have some tan and read a book. 
  • Ideal to fill quiet and nature. It is unusual in the city center and easily accessible.

  • It is now goes in the opposite direction and the Grand place and Brussels Central station. I went to the end of January, but fountain, and was feeling very lonely. Only here and there are people who walk a guy playing frisbee with the dog, and the station. Spring and summer Green is beautiful I think. It is not going to bother if you pass when you go somewhere nice, winter.

  • 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
