Schoonselhof Cemetery

Schoonselhof Cemetery is the last resting place of several famous Belgians and Antwerpers. But many people don’t realise that it is also a beautiful park with shadowy lanes where you enjoy a lovely stroll.

Enjoy the magnificent trees, the stunning monuments and the many birds including woodpeckers, geese and herons. The park cemetery was inspired by Friedhof Ohlsdorf in Hamburg and is also often called Antwerp’s Père Lachaise.
