The Boekenbergpark is located in Deurne-Zuid (Antwerp) on the Eksterlaar, between the Unitaslaan and the Van Baurscheitlaan. The park is 10 hectares in size and was laid out around 1800 around a country house in rococo style as a giant kitsch décor of follies. The ruin tower and the cave complex with ice cellar have been preserved and house the Natural History Museum Boekenberg and a speleological foundation. Today, the park is maintained as a mini-forest, which means that nature in this park can take its course within certain boundaries because only necessary management takes place.
