Create an itinerary including Parc du Cinquantenaire
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.

  • The most conspicuous feature of this large urban park is undoubtedly the spectacular memorial arch, extended on both sides by 3 world-class museums. French-translated to mean “50th Anniversary Park...

  • Beautiful and large park with many side attractions and fountains. Good place to have a picnic with friends, go for a run or walk with family and friends. It has decent variety of trees and plants and also accommodates many sightseeing places such as mosque, museums or arch. Definitely worth place to visit in Brussels.
  • The most beautiful and large park in Brussels. It's got several sections, lots of benches and a few flower beds. Very pretty in good weather and a great spot for a picnic or short break from the busy city.
