Brussels Park, known for many years previously as the Royal Park, is the oldest park in the region which became a public park. Built on the ruins of the park of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Governors of the Spanish Netherlands, it stands proudly between the Federal Parliament and the Royal Palace, symbols of power and the monarchy. This spot, was once the site of fierce battles for the people of Brussels during the revolution in 1830.
Designed in a neo-classical style by architect Guimard and gardener Zinner, it opens onto the large pond and then offers you wide alleys, symmetrical alignments and stunning views. You'll find statues of Greco-Roman mythology, the Vauxhall, a bandstand, the Théâtre Royal du Parc, the Guinguette Royale and even Kiosk Radio, a bar where you can dance beneath the trees!
Location: Place des Palais, 1000 Brussels
