Laeken Cemetery

Laeken Cemetery (French: Cimetière de Laeken, Dutch: Begraafplaats van Laken) in Brussels (Belgium) is the city's oldest cemetery still in function and the resting place of the Belgian Royal Family. It is known as the Belgian Père Lachaise, after Paris' notorious cemetery, because it is the burial place of the rich and the famous and for the abundance of its funerary heritage.

The installation of the Belgian Royal Family in 1831 and the burial of Queen Louise in 1850 contributed to the appeal of Laeken.
