Today, VUB and ULB celebrate their 185th and 50th birthday at Parc du Cinquantenaire in Brussels. The parc was created to celebrate Belgium’s fiftieth anniversary as an independent nation in 1880. With its beautiful gardens, museums and iconic triumphal arch, it is one of the best-known landmarks in Brussels. Today it’s the scene for the biggest academici party of the year. Are you ready to celebrate? We are!


Take into account that you are going to an open-air festival at a historic site. Wear comfortable and flat shoes, so the cobblestones don’t cause you any problems.
Check out all other practical and accessibility advise.
