If the weather is nice, this is definitively a must see! Mount Royal is a small hill in the middle of downtown. In winter you can go up there with (backcountry) skies and in summer it's possible to walk, hike, run or bike up there.

I love montreal even though it's colder than a freezer the citizens still do things outside. The hike up montroyal has steps for the steepest parts and is gorgeous.

It was way too cold to enjoy and while the cemetery was neat to look at it, there was just too much snow and too much wind to actually get out and enjoy the surroundings.

This is a 'must see' place in Montreal. Mont Royal is a mountain in the middle of downtown with different activities to do during all seasons. The top of the mountain has breathtaking view of the city. Definitely, a good experience.

Montreal is blessed to have an official mountain in their city and what a view from the plateau neighborhood. It's pretty neat to gaze at from afar. Nice park and a great place to escape the noise below.

So much to look at and experience. Very beautiful area with fantastic views. Take a walk or ride a bike through here. The cemetery at the top is also peaceful. There is a pond near there too to help relax in tranquility away from the busy city below. Don't be afraid to take the wrong path, there isn't one!

The "mountain" in the middle of the city rises only 650, but it offers acres and acres of beautiful landscaping, dozens of winding trails and bike paths, rocky escarpments, Beaver Lake (with skating in winter), and many superb overlooks of the city. Especially magical at night. Can be visited by car, tour bus, bike, on foot, or on X-country skis.... More

Mount Royal park is a small mountain ( elev. 650 ft ) right smack in the middle of downtown Montreal. It is accessible from all sides on foot but can only be reached from the eastern and southern sides by car. There are two lookouts towering over the city. One reachable by car, overlooking the eastern part of the city,... More
