A triumphal arch is a free-standing monumental structure in the shape of an archway with one or more arched passageways, often designed to span a road. In its simplest form a triumphal arch consists of two massive piers connected by an arch, crowned with a flat entablature or attic on which a statue might be mounted or which bears commemorative inscriptions.
Unique view over Brussels Few people know that the Military Museum gives access to the Jubilee Park Arcades, which present the visitor with a unique view over Brussels. A short elevator ride (or for the more courageous: an impressive number of stairs) leads to two terraces flanking the monumental four-in-hand on top of the archway. The most famous city landmarks can be observed from these two viewing platforms: the Atomium, the Koekelberg basilica, the broadcasting tower and the European Parliament. This undoubtedly is the spot par excellence for a selfie! Access to the Arcades panorama is included in the Museum admission.
