Merlin Entertainments has revealed plans to open a Legoland Discovery Centre in the Belgian capital city Brussels.
The company has signed a deal to launch a 3,000sq ft site at the Docks Bruxsel shopping centre, with an opening date set for mid-2022.
Described as a "next generation" Discovery Centre, Merlin said it would release more details of the attraction later this year.
Meike Lippert, senior divisional director of Merlin's Midway attractions in Europe, said: "We look forward to revealing more special details over the coming months ahead of welcoming our first visitors in Summer 2022."
According to Fabian Maingain, Alderman of Economic Affairs for the City of Brussels, the capital recognises "the added value" of the Legoland brand.
“It is positive for Brussels to welcome this kind of offer, which will broaden the recreational offer along the canal, where you can already find, among others, the train museum, creating potentially interesting touristic synergies,” Maingain said.
“This new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre promises to be a major draw for us both on a local level and beyond, not only supporting economic recovery, but it will also bring a place of wonder for young and old.”
Merlin's portfolio of Legoland Discovery Centres includes sites in the UK, Germany, Turkey, the US, Canada, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Australia.
