Above all, Brussels has the highest green area ratio per capita of all European capitals. Its "village within a city" feel is partly due its many parks, gardens, woods, cemeteries and sports grounds scattered throughout the capital. The facts are clear: half of the Brussels area is made up of greenery, from the city gardens in Watermael Boitsfort to the Wolvendael park, via the Laerbeek nature reserve in Jette or the parc de la Woluwe. Embrace Brussels and enjoy the rush of oxygen!
