It's a 5 minute walk from central station, and next to the library. Essentially a big garden, walk up the stairs and you'll get a decent view. From here you can either go into the library for a higher view or go to the royal palace or Coudenberg. It's nothing special, just a garden. We went at sunset which was... More

Not really sure what the huge deal with the Mont des Arts is? Yes it's fairly nice looking and from the vantage point at the top of the steps you get a fairly decent view and some decent pictures. Personally i found it better at night than the day, a lot less crowded. Maybe i visited at the wrong time... More

The view from on top the stairs was absolutely amazing. Great way to get a really nice look over the top of Brussels. The garden and architecture were beautiful too.

Superb views over the city and solid, stately buildings abound in this area. Museums and a park are adjacent so do not miss this place.

Great views over the city centre from here, and lots of attractions very close by. Mont des Arts is a real tourist hub and you can see why - you shoud definitely plan a walka round this area.

From the top of the Mont Des Arts you'll see how charming is Brussels. There is a nice garden, some monuments, but the view of the old city centre is the greatest attractive. At ten pm we saw the light show of the Grand Place from the top of the hill, and it was terrific.

We stumbled upon this and had to research later just where this was. If you can work this into a sightseeing walk of Brussels, don't pass it up. The view, over beautiful geometric gardens, is the best as this is on top of a hill.
