Take a Stroll

Maria Theresa of Austria created Brussels Park in 1776, even though she had never actually set foot in the city. Today, this spacious, symmetrical, grassy park is one of several lush hangouts in Brussels. At one end of the park lies the Royal Palace and at the other the European and Belgian Parliaments, as well as several city legislatures. The park also houses plenty of concerts, puppet shows, plays, festivals, and other outdoor-performances throughout the year. Together with its playful atmosphere and lush scenery, Brussels Park is a lovely place for a casual walk, a quick run, or some local entertainment.

Utrip Tips

*The celebration of the national holiday is on July 21st, during which there are plenty of festivities throughout the park.
