Aventure Parc

Reviewed By pgb2pgb - Brussels, Belgium

My wife originally found this Park, it's set about 20 minutes drive outside of Brussels in a lovely forest area. It's an activity park where you can climb amongst the trees, using specially designed courses to suit your abilities (yellow, green, red, black). The climbing courses are for all ages from 5 years upwards. You start off on the easy courses before building up to the more adventurous ones (which get higher and more active). Safety is 100% assured, you are supplied with a set of overalls (to keep your clothes clean), gloves (if required), a climbing harness (fitted by the staff), plus a safety line that allows you to go round each course (keeping you from falling if you slip).
The safety line hooks onto the start of each course, then as you move around it follows you (you also have to slide it past catch points on the sections in the course to ensure you don't get stuck). Even if you loose your footing all is okay as you are held in place by the safety line. Most courses are a mix of tunnels, zip wires, climbing nets and walkways... all suspended high up above the ground in the trees. the park has been built ecologically with flexible fittings to the trees so that they are not damaged and the courses can be adapted as the trees grow (no nails or bolts hammered into the trees).
We started off in the sun and then it rained, but being under the trees it didn't matter that much. The thrill of climbing around was great, plus the variety of different challenges made it exciting. The courses are open to both adults and kids, with the red/black courses limited to children above a certain height (but both our children aged 7 & 12 really enjoyed the green, red and black courses). Kids can climb without adults (if you don't feel adventurous enough to join them), but you do have to follow them on the ground level. Staff are all around on the ground to advise and help if anyone gets stuck.
They have their own car park (free), which can take all types of vehicles (cars, buses, vans etc). You have changing rooms to get into your overalls, plus lockers (1€ returnable with key). The staff are very friendly and speak different languages, so english is no problem. There's a cafe which offers standard food like burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches, etc plus coffees, chilled drinks and ice creams (you can sit inside or out as per the weather). If you want something more then you can also try the restaurant nearby outside of the park.
It was great value compared to other adventure parks, costing 27€ per adult and 23€ per child (above 7), plus kids from 5-6 years are 19€. You can spend as long as you like at the park, we went at 10.30am and didn't leave till 4.30pm, so it was a full on day out. We only left as everyone was getting really tired due to the climbing and walking around.
Overall I'd recommend it as an 'active' day out, wear good shoes (with grips), plus loose clothing for under your overalls so you can flex easily. We also took our own gloves (as they fitted well), but sun glasses are not recommended as the can fall plus you are amongst the trees so not really needed (if you wear glasses then take a neck line). Also get a good nights sleep beforehand as you will need all your energy for the climbing. Dogs are not allowed, but there is a public park opposite the entrance where you can walk your dog, etc.
Our favorite bits were the zip wires which are great fun... we will be going again... hopefully to try the evening climbs at night which also look great fun...

Golf du Bercuit

Reviewed By PhotographyCG - Brussels, Belgium

The exhibition has been prolonged until December 31st thanks to its success!!!
Chantal Guillaume shows her collection ‘The World of Golf’ at the Golf du Bercuit in Grez-Doiceau (Belgium) during the entire Summer.
Viewing the official pictures of last year's British Open edition that took place on the mythical Old Course at Royal & Ancient St. Andrews in Scotland, is always a pleasure for any amateur.
The visitor of the exclusive exhibition ‘The World of Golf’ will have the opportunity to enjoy pictures, some even unpublished, of the world's top golf players competing during the British Open 2010. (i.e. Tiger Woods, Padraig Harrington, Phil Michelson, Sergio Garcia, …)
The exhibition also presents a ‘Scenic Holes’ section, which invites the visitor to dream away while viewing some of the most well-known European golf holes. (n° 18 Old Course R&A St. Andrews, n° 5 Bercuit, n° 10 Etretat, n° 7 Royal Ostend, n° 12 Cannes-Mandelieu Old Course, …)
Chantal Guillaume studied photography at the Sint Lukas Academy Brussels. In 2009 she obtained a 3rd place award in the international competition ‘About Golf’ with the photograph ‘Putting Green K Club Smurfit course’ and won the major competition ‘Small Patrimony’ organized by Brussels Capital in 2010 with ‘Red Doorknob’.
As an official reporter during the British Open 2010, some of her works were published to high lighten the press articles on this topic.
She of course had more works published, most of them regarding travels throughout the world, as well as graphic views of architecture and portraits of the management of important companies.
It concerns an exhibition that no amateur golfer would want to miss, eventually combined with a nice round with business partners on the technical Golf du Bercuit course.

Herge Museum

Just outside of Brusells, continue the celebration of cartoons at the Herge Musee (Herge Museum). The museum is dedicated to the creator of Tintin, following him and his life, including his personal experiences.

Reviewed By Steeve P

Tintin is undoubtedly the most famous Belgian in the world. In Louvain-la-Neuve, a student town less than one hour by train from Brussels, there is a Tintin Museum (called "Hergé Museum"). It's only a seven or eight-minute walk from the train station. It isn't the best museum on the planet, but it's new, well-designed, and there is a lot to discover about the different albums of Tintin and his creator, the Belgian Hergé. The souvenir shop at the ground-floor is great too. If you are a fan of Tintin, you shouldn't wait to pay a visit to this museum!

Bois des Reves

Reviewed By Maciej B - Brussels, Belgium

This place, around 40 km from Brussels, offers many possibilities of having joy if the weather is nice. I'm not familiar with the way it works but given the small prices it must be state-owned or at least financed. You pay 1-2 EUR for parking. The playground (huge and well preserved) is free of charge. The pool (we did not try but it looks nice) costs 1,5-2,5 EUR depending on the age. Besides you can find there a BBQ facility (upon earlier reservation), a pond where you can fish, walking and biking routes. The only small problem may be the food. You can easily get some snacks and drinks but if you intend to stay long there you'd better take something with you. There is one cafe with light dishes but it was closed on the day we were there - perhaps it was because it the national celebration on that day. But since the rest was working it was a bit strange.

Arenberg Castle

Reviewed By Evenstar29 - Dusseldorf, Germany

Beautiful place in Leuven. It's situated right behind the sports centre of the University. A lot of Engineering classes are held here. The castle is surrounded by a small river and sometimes there are people on kayaks . In front of the Castle is a big lawn where you can lay down and relax, study or play an outdoor game with your friends. If you live in the City centre it takes you approx. 30min to walk there but it is worth it.

Reviewed By Kouider_milan - Milan, Italy

If you are in Brussels you can spend the day with the family there.
Price are quite expensive for day ticket in case you are planning to go with family go for family pass so you can enter anytime with the entire family.
When you buy tour ticket pay already for your parking to avoid big line.
Make sure that you have some sun because if it will be raining you will not enjoy that much.
You have several choice of restaurant but i suggest you to bring with you fresh sandwiches
