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.

  • It's a place where you can enjoy with your own conditions.People comes here for performing dance practices,exercise,relaxing and seeing Auto World.Good Place for a weekend Outing.  more »
  • It is a beautiful park, but you're also going to be very fast by. This you should really combine with autoworld or something like that, because otherwise you're quick. When we were there, there was also the environment festival and that made a lot of good.
