Hasselt

HASSELT JAPANESE GARDEN: Hasselt Japanese Garden is a little piece of Japan in Belgium. This is a miniature version of the real natural beauty reconstructed the way Japanese have been doing for centuries. This is a must-see spot in Hasselt since it’s the biggest Japanese garden in Western Europe. Built about 20 years ago, the art of landscaping of this imperial garden depicts calm mountain scenery, with soothing sound of river, and view of rocks. Japanese style house, cherry blossoms, a Shinto temple, water-falls, and clear water are just some ideal things to give its visitors some inner peace and tranquility.

Enjoy the pictures that I took during our visit and don’t forget to visit Hasselt Japanese Garden if you are ever in Belgium:

Entry fee to the garden is 5 euros per person (kids 12 years and below are free). The park is open from 2 – 6pm during the summer time. Couple hours inside the park is sufficient. We didn’t find any place to have lunch (thank god we brought sandwiches with us that day) but you can find tea and some snacks in the center of the park, just follow the sign.

    The garden is just a few steps away from the centre of Hasselt, which is filled with restaurants, cafes and shops 😉
