Bois de la Cambre

Royal green

© Jeanmart-OPT


Picnic, stroll, canoodle, dine, or bike in this 122 hectare green space at the end of Avenue Louise. King Léopold II built this park fit for a king; his wife Queen Marie-Henriette loved to ride in its landscaped glory.

This is no ordinary park; it comes complete with theatre, roller skating rink, lake and two Michelin-starred restaurant. Hire a bike and explore. If this park isn’t big enough for you, head south to find the huge Forêt de Soignes from which it was chopped off in the latter half of the 19th century.
