Climbing the Mont des Arts, after the Gare Centrale, you can see the huge clock which strikes the hours with lovely chimes. In the distance you see the Place Royale and the St Jacques sur Coudenberg church, with a view over the city behind you....More

Lovely ´hang-out´spot in the art district with beautiful views over Brussels. Also a good spot to enjoy a cocktail in the evening.

Amazing views of Brussels, great atmosphere and often the centre of parties. Is right next to the Royal palace and the music museum.

Perfect right in the heart of Brussels, so to say! It has special significance and I encourage all to tour.

Great square in the art district. The view from the top on the lower art f the city is great. Here you can also find a lot of culture or music events.

This area serves as a fine scenic area in Brussels and has a proud monument in front. It is a way away from the Grand Palace but is manageable by bus and a very long walk. There will be many people there for the views...More

Nice are at walk around. There is a pop up market on Sundays. Good place to visit in Brussels, but nothing great.
