The View Ferris Wheel

by Vincent

Looking for the best place to get panoramic views over the city of Brussels but don’t know where to go? The newly re-opened “The View” Ferris Wheel attraction just next to the Palace of Justice is your answer.

The View Brussels Ferris Wheel

Already considered to be one of the best viewpoints in our capital, now you can go an extra 55 meters up in the air to enjoy one of the most beautiful panorama of Brussels and its surroundings. Its creator, René Bufkens is no newbie in the business. A few years ago, he acquired the “Grande Roue de Paris” and at last received the long-awaited authorization to install his big wheel in Brussels where he had always dreamed of it being: Square Poelaert.

The prices: 8 € for adults and 5 € for children under 12.
