The Colonial Palace at the Royal Museum for Central Africa is a unique historical location in the peaceful, natural environment of Tervuren.

A stunning base for Mother’s Day if you want to really spoil your mum. And why not combine a visit with a beautiful walk along the Royal Museum for Central Africa or a bike ride in the Sonian Forest?

Covering 4,421 hectares, the Sonian Forest is the largest woodland in Belgium. It encompasses trees that are over 200 years old and is home to a huge range of animals. Cycle between the stately beech trees and forget that the busy city of Brussels is just a stone’s throw away! In short, the perfect blend of culture and nature.

The day will also be an unforgettable experience for the little ones. We provide children’s entertainment and fantastic catering! Make sure Mother’s Day is special for everyone!


This is a ‘Family Welcome’ event:
Every EY employee can invite up to 5 family members to join at this event.
The payment for every familymember has to be made at the moment of subscription by the EY employee, and will be refunded by 100% EY Cashback.
What is ‘Family’? Partners, kids, siblings, parents, and cousins.

All of the ingredients to create a fantastic walk or bycicle tour are present in this unique piece of culture and nature, so you can fully recharge your batteries!

Starting from the Colonial Palace you can experience the entire Parc of Tervuren through the marvellous Royal gardens.  From that point you can direct your journey to the Zonial Forest and his unique vegetation.

A unique piece of culture and nature, all in one afternoon.
