This massive 70 hectare park has a lot to offer. At the very centre of the park is the flamboyant Gothic statue monument to King Leopold I. To the east are the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, and to the south-east, the Castle of Laeken. Natural beauty abounds: winding trails, groves of trees, undulating lawns, sparkling streams and ponds. The Park is inundated with splendid flowers like magnolias, daisies, rhododendrons and jasmine and become a sight to behold when they bloom. And the trees! Chestnuts, conifers, ash, yews, hawthorn, beeches and maples! It is said this is the most English of Brussels’ parks. The best panoramic view of the park can be enjoyed from near the monument.

Surrounding the park are other places of interest, for example, the Chinese Lodge and the Japanese Tower gardens.

  • It is a verry nice place for visiting and long walks, it's peacefull and pretty calm when it's not full of people that have no respect for the few remaining pieces of nature left.

  • It is a wonderful place to visit, no question about this, but for the few weeks in an year when it's opened, it's way too busy. People stand in the queue for hours until they manage to get in and when they do they still see everything as part of a huge snaking queue. No time to stop and see properly. People moving all over the place, so few chances to get proper photos of anything. Also, parts of the greenhouses are closed to public access, unfortunately.

  • Cool park to walk through before or after seeing Atomium. There are soccer courts, outdoor workout machines, sculptures, and many walking paths. Check out the Monument in the park.

  • Great. Clean. Lots of space to walk. Perfect to spend even a whole day.

  • Nothing really to see here. The royal home is not that special and the botanical garden is o nly open for a month and a half this year... the park is also right next to a really busy street
