A cathedral of often two-hundred-year-old beech trees, oak tree groves and other examples of our native species covering more than 5,000 hectares make it the main oxygen tank of Brussels. Its forested vistas lend themselves to all kinds of sport: cycling, riding, Nordic walking, jogging… There are also 3 big fishing lakes for doing a spot of carp fishing.

This ancient, highly diversified forest is a classified site and a Natura 2000 conservation area. Its 5,000 hectares are divided between the country’s three regions, and 40% of its territory lies in the Brussels Region. It includes five nature reserves, two forest reserves and two archaeological reserves.
