Parks, gardens and living walls in Brussels


16/09/2017 - 16/09/2017

The greenest capital in Europe, composed of six valleys, it was mainly in the 19th century that Brussels was covered in more than 300 ha of parks and gardens. Encircled by a network of boulevards and traversed by wide tree-lined avenues, the Belgian capital in this way absorbed what was once countryside to expand, while giving prominence to public green spaces. In order to understand this need for nature in the city, this tour will bring you on an exploration of the Woluwe, Maelbeek, Molenbeek and Senne valleys, across these green places that delight the built-up suburbs of Brussels, where rest and rejuvenation provide moments of escape from our hectic lives. A pleasure for the eyes and the lungs, as well as an effective form of stress relief.

In cooperation with E-Guides.
