Léopold II is without contest the king who had the strongest impact in the development of Brussels. He was responsible for the creation of the Louise and Léopold neighborhoods, the Arch of the 50th Anniversary, the Army and Military History museum, the central boulevards in the style of the Parisian Haussmann boulevards, etc. This drive will take us to Tervuren, former residence of the Dukes of Brabant and where Léopold II built his Central African Museum (closed until 2017 due to refurbishment). Around the museum, one can admire an exceptional park in French-style but also some lakes and former 18th c stables. On the way back to Brussels, we will follow the beautiful avenues created by Léopold II.

This tour doesn't provide visits inside the buildings.
