Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
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.

  • This place is ideal if you want to ride a bicycle in the town. Cause this combination of enjoying the walk through the bike ride contributes easier on being one with the town and her's exploration.  more »
  • Huge disappointment, that is how we describe it. May be, it looks good only on photos, in reality, not that good architecture.  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.
