Lovely area. Would be lovely in summer for picnics but when we were there it rained. However, really nice walks and lovely views. Not very far from the market place so an easy walk.

The lake of love is spectacular in the evening with the reflection of the beautiful flood lit buildings on the lake. The swans enhance the lake with their elegance

We took a stroll through the area, very nice and peaceful. A great way to burn of those extra calories from all the delicious Belgian chocolate!
