Mini Europe

by Vincent

The theme park of Mini-Europe is one of outstanding quality where all the countries in the European Union are represented here in 1:25 scale models of buildings of socio-cultural, historic and symbolic interest.
The 6 acre wide park includes the Acropolis of Athens, Danish houses from the days of the Vikings, Leuven town hall, the austere monastery of El Escorial commissioned by Philip II to the northwest of Madrid, houses lining Amsterdam’s canals (17C), the English city of Bath which is a masterpiece of 18C town planning, the Pompidou Center in Paris etc.

There is here definitely something for everybody’s taste: Lovers of history, enthusiasts of the European Union, people remembering their latest journey, people preparing their next tour or simply people having a nice stroll.
