Cinquantenaire Park Brussels:

This post wraps up our lovely visit to Belgium. We had fun in Bruges. We certainly liked Brussels a lot, and we loved Ghent.  One of the places in Brussels that is easily overlooked is the Parc du Cinquantenaire or Jubelpark.  It is a national landmark. The name translates to mean “Park of the fiftieth anniversary”. It was built to celebrate 50 years of Belgian independence during the reign of Leopold II.

The Cinquantenaire Park is located close to the European Quarter, where the E.U council and all the other important buildings are. We found the park one day as we were coming out of the Central train station. There is an arch that is impressive from afar (looked like Berlin’s Bradenburg gate). We thought we’d investigate.
