Who, in Brussels, is not familiar with La Cambre Wood? But how many know its real history? Today, considered the place to be on sunny days, this remnant of the former Sonian forest was developed by the City of Brussels as a park for romantic walks in the mid-19th century. The works were entrusted to Saxon architect Edouard Keilig, who retained most of its rustic appearance and topography. With its countless anecdotes, monuments and localities, exploring this green lung is essential in order to understand the history of Brussels’ development. The tour will start at the entrance to La Cambre Abbey, travelling along tree-lined drives, paths and tracks to finish up on Avenue Louise/Louizalaan.
