The Botanical Garden of Brussels and its bronze sculptures


16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

The Botanical Garden of Brussels no longer plays a role in botanical and horticultural conservation and research, a function that it carried out for over a century and then lost to the Botanical Garden of Meise. In spite of its misfortunes and modern-day amputations – North-South train junction, boulevards and road tunnels, metro works and office buildings – it remains one of the oldest and most beautiful public parks in the capital. From its creation in 1829, and up to the present day, the park has been a much-loved venue for walks, art and culture. It is the site of open air concerts and contains an extraordinary series of bronze sculptures. Today, its buildings are home to a cultural centre, where native and exotic plants once blossomed. A walking tour that will bring you back in time…

In cooperation with La Fonderie.
