Japanese Garden of Hasselt
36 Gouverneur Verwilghensingel
A touch of Asia in BelgiumIt may look like Japan, but this beautiful garden is in the Flemish city of Hasselt, Belgium. It is the largest Japanese Garden in Europe and was constructed with the help of Hasset’s sister city in Japan, Itami.
While the garden is a tranquil place to visit year-round, spring is particularly magical. In April, the garden's 250 cherry trees burst into bloom, showering the ground with pink and white petals.
