Museus do Extremo Oriente

Entrada gratuita

O rei Leopoldo II queria estruturas famosas de todo o mundo representadas em sua propriedade real em Laeken, e o arquiteto Alexandre Marcel assumiu o projeto com essas duas torres representando o Japão e a China. Diz-se que o Rei Leopold se inspirou em sua visita à Exposição de 1900 em Paris. As torres foram concluídas em 1904, construídas inteiramente em madeira e conectadas por um túnel. O trabalho em madeira foi concluído por especialistas de Xangai e Yokohama, e em exibição estão as artes e artefatos chineses e japoneses que datam do século XVII.

A área ao redor de ambas as estruturas é cercada por um jardim exuberante, adequado para piqueniques. Os estilos culturais distintos do pavilhão chinês e do pagode japonês fazem com que eles se destaquem no restante da arquitetura da cidade. Altas em vermelho e com pavilhões de madeira adjacentes, as torres são partes únicas de Bruxelas que você não pode perder.

The basics

Dedicate an hour or two exploring the park’s attractions on foot, keeping an eye out for photo-worthy spots such as the Japanese Tower, Chinese Pavilion, and Monument of the Dynasty. Alternatively, tick these off with ease on a city tour, with many stopping by the park on their way to the Atomium or MiniEurope. Laeken Palace itself is not accessible to the public, though ticket holders can gain behind-the-scenes access to the Royal Garden and Greenhouses at certain times of year.

How to get there

Located around an hour’s walk outside the city center, most visitors reach the park by public transit or road–tram #3 stops along Avenue des Croix du Feu, just by the Japanese Tower. Some hop-on hop-off bus tours stop directly inside the park. The closest parking lots are near the Brussels Expo, quite far from the park; save yourself time and money on a tour that includes transport.

When to get there

Laeken Park offers year-round seasonal specialties. The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken are only open to the public for a 2-week period each spring, from late April to early May, so plan your visit ahead of time to guarantee entry. During summer, the lawns are often filled by picnicking groups, while fall and winter bring dramatic backdrops ideal for photos.

The Atomium, Mini-Europe Park, and Brussels Expo

The area just northeast of the park was built for the 1958 World Fair and is home to some of the city’s most unusual landmarks, including the Mini-Europe Park, Brussels Expo, and the Atomium, which draws visitors with its 92-meter panoramic platform and atom-inspired architecture. Take advantage of tours that combine the park’s best bits with these modern structures for a comprehensive overview of Brussels’ most unusual architecture.
