DOMAIN OF HUIZINGEN

Easter weather is just so perfect so that we took a walk through the Domain of Huizingen, a parc of 45 ha (111 acres). It is about 20 min from Brussels en the flemish part of the country.

and a train for those who wanted to see the whole domain which is very big. It would take more than two hours to walk all around

For children too, playgrounds are there.

You can easily spend the whole day there.

I love painting, writing, travelling and photography. My favorit models are my four cats which I observe with fun and humor. I am German, married to an Italian and we live in Waterloo (15 km from Brussels) / Belgium since many years. Waterloo is a famous place to many tourists, because Napoleon lost his battle here against Wellington and other European countries.
