Parc d'Egmont

Facing the Egmont Palace, on Rue aux Laines, Egmont Park is home to several sculptures. Of all the statues within, the statues of Peter Pan and that of Price Charles-Joseph de Ligne are much adored. A slice of peace and quiet amid the bustle of the city, the park makes for a nice walk or a short picnic, no matter how old or young you are. Parc d'Egmont also incorporates interesting attractions that seem like they're right out of a fairy tale like an old Gothic well and an Orangerie, to name a few.

Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Koekelberg

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Koekelberg is the fifth largest church in the world. Situated on the Koekelberg Hill, the church, dedicated to Sacred Heart, draws its inspiration from the one in Paris. The construction of the church started in 1905 under the reign of King Léopold II, but was put on hold during the two World Wars and was not completed until 1970. The huge structure (about 100 feet tall) is made of bricks and terracotta, with two towers on each side of the entrance, and an Art Deco edifice. A sight to behold, the magnificent church is a major religious as well as architectural landmark.

Boon Brewery

Boon Brewery is known for creating delicious traditional Belgium beer. They craft different types of beers, including lambic where they use fermented fruits to help counter the typical lambic bitterness. The brewery uses modern equipment to create their beloved brews. On select days there are events and guided tours of the brewery.

Ixelles Ponds

Located in the area of Ixelles, the Ixelles Ponds are a set of two ponds that make for a popular gathering place for locals. The water here is not safe for contact and so visitors are not allowed enter the pond. One can walk along the shore and enjoy the peace or enjoy the picturesque Art Nouveau houses nearby. Sit down on a bench and out look out onto the water to admire the waterfowl or enjoy a picturesque walk around the ponds.

Botanical Garden of Brussels

Located in the northern edge of the city, the Botanical Garden of Brussels is a pretty garden that hosts a variety of plants. In 1938, most of the botanicals were moved to the National Botanic Garden, but this urban park still remains a beautiful spot to rest or take a stroll amongst the large trees. The garden still houses 30 of the 52 bronze sculptures that were a part of the park in the 19th Century. Besides the sculptures and fountains, the garden feature a gazebo at its center and has a collection of herbs, carnivorous species and rare and exotic specimens of plants.

Houtain-le-Val Castle

The Château de Houtain-le-Val was constructed in 1129 by the very first lord Walter de Holten of Houtain. It was originally just a keep, but it underwent constant renovations, especially in the late 1800s by an architect named A. Balat. During the World War I, the villagers bravely prevented the German troops from burning the castle down, and thus it continues to stand in the Genappe municipality in the Walloon Brabant province of Belgium. It is now owned by the Moerkerke family.
