Etangs d'Ixelles, Brussels

4.5
#15 of 30 in Parks in Brussels
Relax and rejuvenate with a trip to Etangs d'Ixelles, two freshwater ponds amid the gardens of the Abbey of La Cambre. The ponds have some historical and eclectic neighbors--chiefly the 19th-century, characteristically red-brick houses, but also those in the styles of Flemish neo-Renaissance, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. Neoclassical facades and the tip of the first pond signify the start of the residential neighborhood. Lush greenery and trees surround the ponds, but visitors are not permitted to sit on the lawns. Contact with the water is also strictly prohibited, so admire from afar.
