This place is clearly one of my three favourite spots in Brussels. Beautiful, cared for and quiet gardens in the middle of a busy area, easy access and never crowded.

Always attracts a cool, chilled crowd. Little nooks and crannies to explore. Great place for strolling and also for exercising.

Beautiful peaceful place in a busy surrounding, old monastery buildings, nicely kept gardens. Some people use it for exercise (run up and down the many stairs, make yoga on the grass), others to enjoy lunch ...

This place is used to be monastery in the past but nowadays it is not used anymore. There is nothing interesting about the building but the park around it is very green and great. Most of local went here for picnic during the weekend.
