    We visited Georges Henri Park on a gorgeous Sunday (few of those around these days in Brussels). At first, the idea that this small park of less than 10 acres had been laid out on the grounds of a disused churchyard seemed somewhat macabre. But once we got there, we could see there was nothing sinister about Georges Henri Park. It was a lovely and varied park with families having a pick-nick on the lawn, lads playing football, children enjoying themselves in the playground and people strolling or having a drink at the outdoor summer café. We liked the lay-out and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

    A few elements of the former churchyard have been maintained, like the two obelisks flanking the entrance gate on Square Meudon and some funerary monuments. Unclaimed tombstones have been used to pave the paths. In a separate corner stands the simple but moving Ravensbrück Monument, a memorial to female members of the resistance and their children who were murdered in Nazi camps during WW II by sculptor Thérèse Chotteau and architect Thierry Gonze.

    I think this is a must see if you are in Brussels.
    View from the top is very nice, Brussels on a palm.
    The church is also beautiful. Museum wasn't working in November.

    Amazing place, absolutely packed with information. Obviously Belgian view so interesting view points! So many artifacts, well laid out. Not allowed to bring rucksacks bags, some places did get a bit cold as did not bring coat with us! Had small child ( 6) she was mesmerised and a few good kid friendly things to do, despite the horror of the history. Has a food place, simple but good. Shuts quite early! Left after nearly 3 hours as information overload, could probabaly have stayed even longer! Great going up to viewpoint on roof!

    This is a huge center city park very well landscaped. Lots of green space to explore when you get tired of the built-up area. Look for the amazing and troubling memorial to King Leopold and the horrible colonial period.

    The most conspicuous feature of this large urban park is undoubtedly the spectacular memorial arch, extended on both sides by 3 world-class museums. French-translated to mean “50th Anniversary Park”, this park was commissioned by King Leopold II to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Belgian Revolution. Located just a short walk from the European Commission, this is a lovely park to relax, meditate, or just dream the day away.

    We were staying local so this was on our doorstep.
    Beautiful park with many interesting paths to walk.
    Spread over many levels and dotted with various statues park was a pleasure to walk through.
    Beautiful trees all over and interesting ponds.
    All we were missing was our dog!

    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.

    It was a very beautiful place. I saw all the cities of Europe and learned more about them. Each building had the name of the country on it which made it more clear. The buildings were realistic and looked real. It’s also nice that there was one route so you don’t miss a country. But I think it would be easier if there was another faster route to get to the exit, toilet or restaurant. In my opinion it would be better if the routes were wider.
    But still it was a very beautiful and interesting place!

    Autoworld, a museum dedicated to motor vehicles, is also open on Monday, which is less common for many museums. The Autoworld Museum tells visitors the story of cars, but also of motorcycles, as well as their evolution. It is arranged in one of the wings of the complex in the Parc du Cinquantenaire.
    The museum was created on the basis of the outstanding collection held by the Mahy family. Among the models donated to the museum there are many cars of Belgian companies that I have not even heard of: Minerva, Germain, FN, Imperia, Fondu, Vivinus, Nagant, Belga-Rise, Miesse.
    In the museum I had only one problem: I did not know what not to photograph. As a result, I photographed until the battery of the camera left me off ... then I switched to the smartphone.
    The people at the museum had a special idea, that of linking certain types of cars to the life of rock stars and created a collection: "Cars and Rock 'N Roll". That's how I learned very interesting things about Ringo Starr, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Madonna, Marc Bolan, Robert Plant and the cars they drove successfully, or with less success, during their lifetime.
    The museum's collection is quite remarkable and who likes such "toys" should visit the museum.
