Brussels has many parks but this one is unique and incredibly peaceful (not to mention super romantic). It features a rose garden, an orchard, a pond, giant mushroom seats in stone and even a colossal Olmec head... Located between the busy Bois de La Cambre and the gigantic Sonian Forest, this little gem is one of Brussels best kept secrets.
This Art Deco house, surrounded by a beautifully lush garden, originally inhabited by the couple David and Alice Van Buuren, was transformed into a private museum which exhibits a wide range of rare furniture, tapestries, glass frames, sculptures and paintings in their original décor.
The hot NYC gallery opened a massive exhibition space near WIELS some time ago. They run a good contemporary art program in a surprising architecture and they also have a wonderful little café which is great for lunch.
Without a doubt my favorite place to eat real Belgian food! This family owned restaurant is a bit outside the city centre but it is definitely worth the trip. The food is delicious and the service extra friendly (children are more than welcome). In the summer they also have a terrace. If you're craving for mussels, bloody meat and perfect fries, look no further.
