This little pocket park is one of the most interesting spots in the city. The formal garden is surrounded by dozens of statues of olden-day professions each sitting on a unique pillar and framed by a unique section of iron work fencing. You can Google or search for a list of them which makes it a lot of fun. Meticulously maintained and rarely crowded.

Easy to miss as it's right at the top of Place du Grand Sablon, which is a good place to sit outside one of the many cafes and watch the world go by. If you're a smoker, the tobacconist Davidoff has excellent choice, with many pipe tobaccos

After taking a look at the local cathedral next to this delightful square, we stumbled across this place. Beautiful little park with a lovely fountain and plenty of benches and places relax with a loved one.
Awesome statues and artwork.

A small, classical, symmetrical little square (full of tulips in spring), with benches to sit down, in the heart of Old Brussels, vis-à-vis the Sablon church. Beautiful and moving statue dedicated to two Flemish martyrs of the 16th century, Counts Egmont and Horn, decapitated by the Duke of Alba on the orders of the King of Spain for rebellion and treason.

Charming garden with a lovely fountain and multiple sculptures celebrating local history and important personnages. A nice spot to enjoy a bench and take a break from sightseeing and the urban bustle. The picturesque garden sits between the Church of Our Lady of Sablon and the Egmont Palace.
