What travelers are saying
- There is a beautiful view from these gardens, nonetheless the view is a sight within itself. It is modest - nothing worth trekking your way for. Only takes two or three minutes to walk around the whole thing. One can merely pass it by, but I would stop to get a good photo and enjoy the statues.Written September 18, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Parc de Bruxelles is located just across Royal Palace and considered as Royal Park. Copying Versailles, the Habsburg empress Maria Theresa of Austria (Marie-Antoinette's mom) had this symmetrical park laid out in 1776 (she ruled but never visited, the city). This is one of many large parks of Brussels, which started with an awareness of the importance of city planning. Honestly, the park is just a park, nothing special, just take a walk, sit and breathe. And if it weren’t for the funny sculptures scattered along the alley, there’s not much to do or see there.Written September 27, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Wonderful environment just outside the skirts of Brussels. Hiking routes free available in the internet. Nice points to refuel the inner person.Written May 17, 2022
- A lovely green spot away from the hustle and bustle of Place Jourdan on a Sunday morning. You can stroll round the small lake or sit on the grass. There is also a small playground that looked well maintained. There are a few Egyptian geese on the lake and you can hear the green parakeets squawking even if you can’t see them.Written September 14, 2023
- A park designed for the World’s Fair, it is a quiet place for a run. While it looks very large on the map, the majority of the park is off limits to the public. However, you can run to other parks for a longer run but you will be on the street for some of the time.Written February 25, 2020

- This is located in central area of Brussels and ideal for a walk in busy city. Also recommended to read a book and relax on a bench in this garden. Could be busy at times. Attention also to sun as there are no shady areas and can be very hot in summer time. Good place for a photo from the stairs in front of the garden.Written June 29, 2023
- If you have time to get out of the city of Brussels a stroll in this Red Cloister park is a great escape. It is a Natura 2000 site, and has some rare bird species. It also has a play ground for kids. When we visited they were renovating the buildings and the café was unfortunately closed. But it was still a nice walk.Written February 12, 2020
- Apart from the tourist must-dos, this is my favorite place in Brussels. Etangs d'Ixelles is a small, pleasant lake at a nice neighborhood. A stroll around the waterfront is particularly enjoyable and relaxing.Written June 15, 2023

- Really pretty place to walk around and enjoy flowers and trees and turtles and fish. They lock it up at nights to keep it safe. I really enjoyed it.Written May 26, 2023
- I was on my way to the Atomium from my small hotel near Stuyvenbergh and decided to check out the parks I could see on the map. I'm glad I did.
Maybe it's an age thing, as I near 50, but I've developed a respect for gardens that I never really had before.
Les Jardins des Fleuriste are really quite the sight, even as autumn is drawing in.
If you're planning a trip to Atomium from central Brussels, do yourself a favour and leave the metro at Stuyvenbergh and wander the parks first. There are trams nearby that I am sure can take you to the Atomium afterwards.Written October 16, 2023
