Situated along a wide avenue that straddles Koekelberg and Ganshoren, Elisabeth Park opens up one of the longest and most beautiful vistas in the Brussels-Capital Region. It stretches from the National Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Koekelberg to the Botanique. Take a walk through the park along the winding paths and alleys that form the 'L' of Leopold, in reference to King Leopold II.
Visit the Basilica, a building commissioned by King Leopold II, which was started in the early 20th century and completed some 50 years later! Inspired by the neo-Byzantine style, this Art Deco masterpiece of reinforced concrete and brick is one of the largest churches in the world!
Just a stone's throw away, the Belgian Chocolate Village - with its chocolate workshops - lets you discover the history and secrets of the chocolate-making process. You can also visit chocolate roaster Frederic Blondeel: watch him at work in his open workshop and treat yourself in his bar and shop.
