About Charles Karel Buls Fountain, Brussels

Buls was a Freemason, and mayor of Brussels from 1881 to 1899. He was quite progressive for his time but his main achievement was to thwart King Leopold II’s attempts to mutilate Brussels. This fountain on Agora Square shows him reclining, his dog by his side, admiring the city he helped preserve.

Charles Karel Buls Fountain, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice place, worth coming, take a photo. Shame that fountain wasnt working at the time of visit. Lovely market around it.

  • There is so much to see and do in Brussels that you will fail to notice some of the more interesting sculptures, memorial,monuments,or public art installations. I am sure that many will walk by this wonderful fountain erected to remember a highly respected gentleman known as Charles Buls or Karel Buls. Charles was a Belgian politician and mayor of the City of Brussels. In 1999, a fountain with a larger-than-life-sized seated statue of Buls and his dog was erected at the Place Agoraplein, close to the Grand Place and I suggest that you take the time to visit it the next time you visit the city centre. I have never noticed any water in the fountain.
