Mini-Europe is a miniature park located in Bruparck, at the foot of the Atomium, in Brussels, Belgium. Mini-Europe has reproductions of monuments in the European Union and other countries within the continent of Europe on display, at a scale of 1:25. Roughly 80 cities and 350 buildings are represented. Mini-Europe receives 350,000 visitors per year and has a turnover of €4 million.
The park contains live action models such as trains, mills, an erupting Mount Vesuvius, and cable cars. A guide gives the details on all the monuments. At the end of the visit, the Spirit of Europe exhibition gives an interactive overview of the European Union in the form of multimedia games.

The details of all the figures is quite impressive. And it is great that there are so many. It is a great trip to get to know the most important monuments from some European countries. After visiting it, you can always plan your next trip around Europe! It is also fun to look for the people that look funny. For example, in Copenhagen or in Brussels there are some funny miniatures. I thought two hours would be too much for this, but at the end if you read through the book what each of them are, two hours are needed.

The grounds are nice inside, otherwise it is what it is. Some of the models are impressive the rest are ok. The interactive ones are unintentionally funny. Easy enough to get to on the underground €4.20 return, combine that with €15.50 entry per adult and its not overly expensive. Bring a sandwich or something with you, the food is not great. it doesn't take that long to complete even with a few stops to enjoy the sunshine. It gets you out for half a day

I would describe this place as an educational mix between LEGO Land and a mini-golf course. Everything is built on a 1:25 scale but none of the detailing was lost in the downsizing. The level of detail was especially impressive in the reproduction of Westminster and the Grand Place.

We went to Mini Europe in the evening. We thought it wont be the best time, but it definitely was. The lighting near every monument was so precise & beautiful that we spent almost 3 hours just wandering around the park, noticing minutest of the details & hard work put into creating these monuments. If you don't have time to visit all of Europe in a single trip, you can simply visit Mini-Europe in Brussels & discover all the replicas in one place

It was a fun experience for adults and amazing for children. Models and mackets are very well created. Presentation is fabulous. It has almost all landmarks of Europe around 80 cities and more than 200 buildings. I recommend you to take the Hop on Hop off once you visited Brussels. You can see all attractions in only half day.

This is a great place to see miniaturized famous European buildings/monuments. Very well maintained and attention to details is unbelievable. I strongly recommend this place to every tourist. One could spend a couple of hours easily here. They have benches all over the park to take quick pit stops. Also have a small restaurant.

You want to see the salient features of Europe at one place...go to Mini Europe. Its created very tastefully and well explained with the help of guide books and interactive machines. The area looks small but it takes you well over 2hours to see the entire exhibit. There are clean toilets and a nice cafeteria. Don't forget to check the photos taken of you when you enter. They are professional and worth a buy as a souvenir of the place.

Cool idea. The cost seemed a bit high for what they have to offer. Our visit was fun with two small children. We went on a weekday morning and had the place mostly to ourselves. I would have given more stars if it weren't for the cost. It gave us a lot of ideas for future trips in Europe.

A fun way to walk through Europe in a day. You get a free booklet with explanations of all of the countries, and they have a rest area (and restrooms) just about halfway through. We had a great time seeing what there is to see in Europe! A fun, family experience! You can get a discount ticket for bundling this with a ticket to the Atomium, walking distance away from Mini Europe.

Nice place to spend time. Kids will enjoy specially. You get to see miniature models of all major cities of Europe. This place gave me motivation to explore Europe and see the actual sites by visiting different countries. At entry you get a handy information booklet containing all facts about the countries.

Pretty over rated place considering it’s comes under the top 10 things to see in Brussels. Place is dated and requires a good face lift. All props are made of plastic. Many are sun bleached. Boats being towed are partially submerged. Much of the water is silty Not worth the €15:50 entry

An amazing experience! We spent about 3 hours there and enjoyed. They did very good job in creating the models and considered lots of details. The only problem that we had was to find our way through the entrance of the park! There are not enough signs there to guide you through the park and is a little bit confusing for a tourist who is not familiar with the area!
