+The Japanese&Chinese Towers are 2 museums.I have travelled a lot in Europe but never seen sth like this.Also,there is a really nice park to walk or ride your bike.
-The stuff isn't really helpfull.I asked them for information("why were the towers built?by whom?etc)and they didn't really know..
*The price ticket is 3euro for students and 4 for adults.
*Trams 3 and 7 go there,stop "Araucaria". Visit it,it's nice!
! After that you can take the tram,just outside,to go to"Mini Europe"and"Atomium".They are 7 minutes away.

Both look really impressive, and it's lovely to walk around the area, as it is so peaceful! It was a shame that it was closed for renovation though. Would recommend once it's open though!

We went to see this place after a long walk through the park from the Atomium. Unfortunately when we got there we saw that it was closed for renovation!

The signs on the temporary fence were in Dutch and French so we couldn't understand what was happening or when.

Luckily the grounds were still open around the Chinese pavilion. The Japanese section is closed off.

Both are still closed, clearly boarded up and litter bound, personally not worth the trek out to see them.

You can get in the small park by the Chinese one, but it's not up to much and some of the paths are being relayed (it needs it).

There is absolutely no information about these and even the ticket kiosk is boarded up.

Better things to do with your time.

The Japanese and Chinese towers were closed and fencing around them. I'm not sure if it's just being renovated so you could only take photos and try to crop out the security fencing and guards. Hopefully they are being renovated so people can visit in future as they looked beautiful from the outside.

Information about this place is so hard to come by. We planned to spend a whole day (it was a Tuesday) in the area, starting from Eglise Notre Dame de Laeken, then the palace and Serres Royales De Laeken, and from there to the Garden of the Japanese Tower and the Garden of the Chinese Pavilion that right near it - and all of them were closed.
The gates of the Chinese Pavilion were actually open, with not a soul around. We even went to the ticket booth - it was closed, but looking on the schedule, there was not a word about it being closed in September. Since we plan very carefully, I can assure you that at the time we couldn't find info telling us actually all of these are closed in September. Very disappointing.

If you have seen all the other marvels of Brussels and you have spare time worth to see this replicas, remaining from the Worls Exposition of 1956 (I think)

These two buildings are clearly two jewels in the most unexpected location. There is a explanation behind of course, these were two pieces from an Exhibition that stayed in Brussels. They are totally worth visitig and specially at night are amazingly!

Still closed but a very nice park take line 3 to espalanda and get off at Acuaria. There are no tourists or noise in the park. Much more relaxing than the central park
