The Sonian Forest to the southeast of Brussels is a vast area of pristine nature dominated by beech and oak trees. It is a paradise for outdoor activities, and a much-needed leisure area where citizens of the crowded city can relax and regain breath. The forest hides numerous attractions worth discovering, including some of the oldest archaeological remains of Belgium, and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the northwest, the forest stretches into the city as the Ter Kameren Park, much of which is of artificial nature.
The Ter Kameren Park is easily reachable from the centre of the city through the Louise Avenue public transport corridor, and the northern part of the Sonian Forest is fairly easily accessible by tram 94 . The areas close to Watermaal-Bosvoorde give the best impression of what the authentic Sonian Forest looks like.
