Neptune Fountain squirts again in Laken after half a century

 

18/4/19 - A Brussels fountain that hasn’t functioned since 1965 is spraying water once again.  The Neptune Fountain commissioned by King Leopold II in 1905 has been renovated and can once again be admired along the Van Praetlaan near the royal palace of Laken and the Atomium. The Brussels Region invested 700,000 euros to equip the fountain with a new rainwater reservoir containing 25,000 litres.
