Near Brussels’ Atomium, Mini-Europe Park is a fun and fast way to learn about Europe’s most notable structures. The miniatures, which include a three-meter-tall Eiffel Tower and a four-meter-tall Big Ben, captivate about 400,000 visitors each year.
For example, the City of Brussels took nearly 300 figures to carve and the Cathedral of Santiago required over 24,000 hours of labour to complete, so these models garner a lot of attention. For example, the Grand-Place in Brussels is the most expensive due to its complexity.
As well as a number of stationary attractions like mills, trucks, trains, and boats, the Mini-Europe park also has an active volcano in the form of Vesuvius, which is currently erupting.
Ideal for children and adults
Visiting Mini-Europe with the entire family is a wonderful way to spend time together. This small park can be found at the base of the Brussels Atomium. It’s a great way to see a lot of Europe quickly. If you’re travelling with children to Brussels, take them on this tour!
At Mini-entrance, Europe’s you’ll find a guidebook with directions and facts about the various landmarks you’ll see.
