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. Make Parc du Cinquantenaire a part of your Brussels vacation plans using our Brussels sightseeing planner.
Parc du Cinquantenaire reviews
Huge disappointment, that is how we describe it. May be, it looks good only on photos, in reality, not that good architecture. more »
A nice park to go to and walk in. We visited it a the end of winter, and there was alot of constrction going on there... But it will probbaly over in the summer! more »
I loved it very much. Quiet, clean. But there is a WC problem.
Lovely to go out to this time of the year. While the park with its magnificent gardens and renovated sculptures is a marvel for the eye, the green grass and flowery branches make you dream away after a heavy week at work.
