Great View of Montreal

It's worth the drive to this mid city treasure. At the top is a scenic view where you can park and take selfies with the city in the background.

There is nothing special about this place but still you will feel like spending couple of hours here. You have to check the weather before going. On a good summer day (70+ temp) its really amazing specially after the sun goes down.The view of the city is awesome and with cool breeze flowing through you will feel very relaxed. There... More

We were on the 9th floor of the Hilton Garden Inn, Centre-Ville, and had a spectacular view of the Mont with its 100-foot illuminated cross from our hotel room. We didn't get to the mont itself, its parks, etc. but even from exterior views, from our hotel or from the McGill campus, this is such a pretty sight.

Great place to visit, also easy to get with a car. Day time view is fantastic, but I would recommend going there at night - very romantic and beautiful.

What a delight and such a surprise so close to the city! We walked up the steep section of the park and accessed via a series of steps behind McGill University. Although a little challenging, the walk was extremely picturesque and well shaded. The view from the top was amazing and we really enjoyed wandering around the numerous walking trails.... More

A mountain in the middle of a city! There is a steady climb either on foot or bike (I recommend bike) to get to the top near the chateau. The view of Montreal below is breathtaking. If you visit Montreal you have to go all the way up.

Mont Royal is awesome to get your bearings of the city when you first get there. If its a nice day out I would recommend hiking to the top (not too strenuous, the paths are very nice and well maintained) and getting an incredible view of the city. There are also parts of the park where you feel like you're... More

Mont Royal is a beautiful walk with stunning views of the city. During our stay, the weather was just transitioning to Spring, but it was still super-cold outside (snow still on the ground). The cold weather didn't take away from the great hike - which could be longer or shorter based on personal ability and preference. We walked up to... More

Lovely park above Montreal. Wonderful view of the city. A nice place to bike or picnic. Traffic can be bad but the Grey Line hop on hop off can take you there.

Staying in Parc du Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
