Experience the Belle Époque as a family in Léopold Park

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Young and old, come and explore Léopold Park together. This green space was redesigned in the mid-19th century to serve as a place where the wealthy inhabitants of the new Léopold quarter could come for walks. It then became Brussels zoo, where all the city came to visit. At the turn of the 20th century, the park was transformed into a centre of science by the Université Libre de Bruxelles, which at one time considered relocating to Maelbeek valley. Between culture, heritage and the joy of learning, travel through time in the heart of a natural setting with this fun tour! Immerse yourself in the midst of 19th century society, new scientific discoveries and architectural innovations. Slip on your overcoat, put on your top hat, dust off your petticoat and come and discover Léopold Park… an exploration of modernity!

In cooperation with Bruxelles Bavard.
