A walk in the park in Brussels

Many people think that Brussels is grey and miserable, but in fact it is one of the greenest cities in Europe. There are many different places to choose from in the capital of Europe. Are you ready? Let’s take a tour around the best parks in Brussels.

Bois de la Cambre

First we have Bois de la Cambre or Ter Kamerenbos. This is the green lung of Brussels, it‘s next to the edge of the Sonian Forest. This park is ideal for sports or hiking, of course with respect and compliance of the social distancing rules. Also don‘t miss out on living here,  we have nice apartments nearby such as Defacqz.

The Cinquantenaire

Next we have The Cinquantenaire, is it a coincidence that the name of this  park has the same letters as quarantine? I don’t think so. This park has beautiful buildings, some amazing and tall trees and a beautiful fountain. If you wanna get some fresh air, don’t hesitate to give this park a chance. Of course Globexs doesn’t skip such a beautiful park, we have some nice apartments nearby. Like Montgomery 2 and Montgomery 3.


Last but not least we have this cute park: Tenbosch. Don’t be put off by the size of this park. This is a small park but ideal if you have children. It has a nice playground for you and your children. Ideal for a family walk, one day. If you‘re still looking for a place to live, near this wonderful park, we got you covered. Check out Elsene now and move later!


This is one of the largest parks in the Brussels urban area. Here you will find lots of ponds which attract ducks, swans and lots of birds. Furthermore this park has many different trees and shrubs, it goes up to approximately 180 species. This green lung is definitely a must-visit if you‘re around! Of course Globexs does not miss this opportunity and also has a nice apartment available here: Auderghem

Brussels Stadspark

This was the first public park of Brussels. The park was recently renovated and is surrounded by lime trees. This large park with many trees stretches between the Federal Parliament and the Royal Palace. If you would like to live close to this park, don’t hesitate to take a look at Sablon

Leopold park

The Leopold park hosts many historical buildings such as the Pasteur Institute, the former Solvay library, the former Solvay school of commerce and many more. It is situated on the edge of the big sites of the European district. It is a great place to escape the busy city. Do you feel like living here? We have a fantastic apartment available: Schuman


This lovely park is very close to the Atomium. It is great for a run, so put on your shoes and go! Are you as amazed by the location as we are? Don’t worry about it, we‘ve got you! Check out Laeken if you‘re interested in living here. It is a great and quiet place, ideal to unwind for a bit. 

Don‘t forget the rules

Of course it is important that everyone sticks to the rules and the best thing of all is to stay inside. But we all know that sometimes this is not easy, however, if you do go for a walk, choose the nearest park and respect the rules!
