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.

  • Beautiful, nice flowers. Truly a great place to relax with friends or family in. A bit overcrowded sometimes , though that’s understandable, as it is a great park. You can also see some monuments and some historical architecture. Has space for various activities, and a variety of different places - more shaded, more open. Truly a great park.
  • I absolutely adore this park, it's so beautiful and is surrounded with lovely historical buildings and stunning beds of flowers and lots of seating areas both benches and simply on the green grass. This is my third or fourth time here, only this time I was able to show my husband where I used to work as a nanny. Highly recommended :) ❤️ 🇧🇪
