Parc du Cinquantenaire, Brussels

4.3
Stroll the promenades of a grand urban park at Parc du Cinquantenaire, home of the Arc du Cinquantenaire. The 19th century saw the addition of the triumphal arch for Belgium's 50th anniversary as an independent nation. Three museums occupy the northern part of the park: the Royal Military Museum, Autoworld, and the Cinquantenaire Museum. A 19th-century monument called the Temple of Human Passions and a Great Mosque take up the northwest corner of the park. The buildings at the corners of the park complement the arch's neoclassical grandeur with their domes and rotundas, and the center is dominated by an esplanade where you can walk through the landscaped greenery.

  • Beautiful park in the midst of everything in Brussels. This is a large space with plenty of people-watching!  more »
  • It stretches a lot, there's where hurry you can picnic, or run for children. There is the military museum and antique cars, too. Every week, some initiatives, such as the end of August there was the exhibition board games x children of all ages. You can take the famous crisps from street vendors. The Park has a large main entrance with the triumphal arch. The "borders" you can go jogging and walking dogs.
