This place is really beautiful. One of the best places to view in Brussels, Belgium. The place is full of gardens around the arc with beautiful lawns and flowers. If you are a fan of photography then this is one of the finest places to be in Brussels. If you are somewhere close to the city centre then the best is to walk to this place. If the weather supports you then walking to this place will almost let you see most of the city. The parliament, embassies, the park,etc. will all be visible on the way to the arc. There are also food stalls near this so you can just hangout with friends and capture loads of photos here and have an ice cream or fries when you want to have a snack. The other side of the arc are basically the normal city buildings. But is almost one end of the city. On my suggestion, if you are in Brussels then you must visit this place. There are also beautiful open cafeterias near the arc which makes it very suitable for tourists.
One of my favourite parks in Brussels. The surrounding trees are very relaxing and during spring it is really thick with green leaves and in Autumn it turns into a colourful burst of warm colours. The monument is very close all and the lawn is perfect for picnicking during summer or just spend some time to read a book or have a can of beer.
The park is situated very close to the European institutions and is very convenient for a small break. Ideal for sports, jogging, relax, meet with friends etc. Under the park there is a highway entering the city 😯 War museum and a permanent car exposition in the Park. Most visit place!
I loved this place! It’s beautiful big park with the amazing arch! It’s nice to just set and relax. The only downside was there were no public toilets! I thought it was very odd for a public place that big not to have public toilets. I even asked few people and they said you could use the toilets inside the museums but they were closed.
This is right beside the museum. I am not a museum type of person but I seriously enjoyed this museum. The path is freezing in winter and alive in the summer with plenty of pop up activities. Warm or cold.... It's a lovely walk.
