You are invited, on Sunday, 6 July 2008 to an

Imagination Club Brussels Sunday Afternoon Culture Group Activity:

A guided walk of the historic churchyard area
of the cemetery of Laeken and its two churches

The cultural organization Laeken découverte is offering a tour, in English, of the famous cemetery of Laeken with its wealth of sculptural creations and the two churches. Indeed this graveyard is often compared with the Père Lachaise in Paris.

Apart from being the last burial ground in Brussels to be situated around a church, and being tied physically and historically to the Belgian royal family, the cemetery of Laeken has the following features to offer :

the underground passageways, the church built in 1275 and an abundance of sculptural art : an authentic ‘Thinker’ by Rodin and numerous creations of the Salu ‘dynasty’ of sculptors (Ernest I, II and III whose old workshop is still to be seen near the main entrance); the tombs of great figures from the worlds of art, architecture, politics and industry, plus, since 1850, the tombs of the kings and other members of the royal family.
