If you leave Brussels on the north side via the N277 (Koninginnelaan), you drive straight to the beautiful “Our Lady of Laeken” church. The road bends to the right just before the church. Behind this church is the old cemetery of Brussels, with the very special “underground” burial place. At the time of my visit they were renovating this section, and was formally inaccessible. Once underground, there was not much to photograph, it was full of building materials and the most grave slabs were removed. But the “above ground” cemetery is definitely worth the visit, especially the beautiful tomb sculptures.
