As its name suggests, Laeken Park is located in the northern Brussels district of Laeken. It's part of the Royal Estate, together with the Osseghem and Sobieski parks, and the Colonial Garden and the Florist's Gardens. They form a large, landscaped estate within walking distance of the Atomium.
This French-style park has paths, winding walkways, lawns and copses. An avenue of magnolias leads you to the flamboyant neo-Gothic Dynasty monument. It houses a statue of King Leopold I, a spire similar to that of the City of Brussels Town Hall and nine arches topped by nine pinnacles, referring to the number of provinces in the country at the time. Discover also the chapel and the fountain of Saint Anne and the former United States pavilion of the 1958 Universal Exhibition.
Take a stroll through the green areas surrounding Laeken Park and visit the Atomium, Mini-Europe, the Planetarium and the Design Museum Brussels. The Japanese Tower and the Museums of the Far East are just a stone's throw away.
