Winterslag garden city

Inspired by the garden cities he had seen in England, in 1911 at the request of mining pioneer baron Evence Coppée II, the Brussels architect Adrien Blomme designed a ‘total concept’ for Winterslag that combined city and country. The design for Winterslag garden suburb, a first for Belgium, was structured around major elements like the railway station, church and mine. The planting of parks and gardens and tree-lined avenues was also integral to the plan.
The C-mine discovery map outlines a 4-kilometre walk through this charming green residential area in the vicinity of the colliery.
Priced at €5, the discovery map is available from the C-mine Visitor Centre during opening hours.
