Walking tour

The five senses, minus one

Colour is all around us. Nature puts on a dazzling display with each new season – a true delight for the eyes! As we behold its beauty, we may begin to wonder how people with visual impairments experience colourful gardens. Why not find out with a trip to Anderlecht’s Sensory Garden, guided by your other four senses?

While the Sensory Garden is open to all, it is the first enclosed public garden in the Brussels-Capital Region to be designed and developed with visually impaired people particularly in mind. This means they can move around independently within it. The Sensory Garden is a new addition to Anderlecht’s park system. It is primarily – and naturally! – geared towards our senses of smell (scented plants), hearing (water features), touch (plants with characteristic textures) and taste (some of the plants in the garden are edible).

In French only.

In cooperation with E-Guides.
