Parckfarm is located at Tour & Taxis and the railway wasteland left by the abandonment of the site. Since 2014, this park has been an edible park where urban agriculture is practiced and sustainable food is promoted. Thanks to Parckfarm, inhabitants have reappropriated this green space. Covering nine hectares, the park is the largest in central Brussels.
You'll see a shared orchard, a vegetable garden, a neighbourhood compost, a chicken coop, beehives and a bread oven. The bees enhance the biodiversity of the park; you might even leave with a jar of fresh honey! Stop at La Farmhouse, a greenhouse with a cafeteria where you can enjoy vegetarian dishes prepared with products from local craftsmen and traders. Take a seat in the reading corner and enjoy the entertainment and board games available, without any obligation to eat!
Join guided tours, activities and workshops: gardening, herbalism, honey-potting, bread-making... Discover an obelisk dedicated to human rights and a playground built with materials salvaged from the old railway that used to run there.
Make sure you visit the Gare Maritime, a street food market and venue for events, exhibitions and shops that's surrounded by greenery! If you're a video game fan, head for the nearby Pixel Museum and if you like beer, visit some of the area's numerous breweries.
