You cannot be in Brussels without seeing the Cinquantenaire park. It's a taste of both nature and history, and especially in summer it offers a multitude of activities, from Zumba and Tai-Chi to medieval and comic fairs and everything in between.

The park is nice but the giant arches are the real cool thing. They are really big and can be seen from the distance. I thought that they were worth the time to go and see.

What a beautiful park and architecture. Way more impressive than The Tiny Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. You can get to the top to enjoy an impressive view of Brussels (free of charge if I remember well).

It's a place where you can feel the greatness of past times. An architecture with lot's of attention to the details, definitely worth a visit.

This is a very nice park, for running, walking, sitting in the grass and drinking beer... Also there is quite a lot of things going on such as various concerts and themed festivals. I recommend checking out, if there is something going on (rarely during week days, check weekends) and visit the park on one of those days (preferably in... More

As an inhabitant of Brussels I'm always surprised how many tourists go visit the park. It's nice, but not more than that. And that goes for the museums in it too.

Gate looks like Brandenburgen gate and you may call it of Belgium. Beautiful garden place to have a nice walk or run anytime in the day or night. Surrounding military museum and it has all old weapon and planes used.

I never heard of the Jubelpark before, but that triumphal gate reminded me of the Brandenburger Tor. It's pretty impressive. There are some very good museums around, and the park itself is quite nice. Must be great on sunny days. It's close to some EU bildings and there is a big mosque in one corner.

We went here on a cold foggy winter morning, so could not enjoy the grandeur of this place. Reminded us of Arc de Triumphe of Paris. It has beautiful sculptures and garden around. If you walk away from the Cinquantenaire, you enter the boulevard of EU buildings in either side. Can be an impressive walk during a weekday with all... More

This arc, constructed in 1905 is possibly one of the larges arc in europe. It is amazing in size and beauty. The nearby museums are pretty cool too!
