Excellent garden view

The Mont des Artes offers a spectacular view of the city center as well as a much nicer view of the royal palace garden. And the later is a real nice view.

I love this place. While in Belgium I kept coming back to Jardin du Mont des Arts every time I had an opportunity. Great place to people watch and is so beautiful. Seating down at the Jardin on a sunny day is a must to feel like a local of Brussels.

A short distance from the city center, this beautiful place named ''Mont des Arts'' or commonly ''Artist's Hill'', is a spectacular place rich in art with a lovely manicured garden, certainly not the top attraction in the city, but a short visit is due.

In the late 19th century King Leopold II converted this section of the city, the Mont des Arts is a cluster of art institutes, a landscaped hillside which offers some great city views including the spire of the Town Hall and a pretty garden. At the top of Mont des Arts is the Royal Fine Arts Musuem, after our visit... More

There are various events there during some weekends, but not really something to put on your agenda if limited time

It is worth visiting the Mont and walking down towards the rail station as one gets a good view of Brussels as well and some nice photos in the park on the way down.Unfortunately none of the fountains had any water in them but would look beautifully if operating.

A marvelous descent with fine horticulture and impressive buildings that surround. In a nice weather you can see the tower of the City Hall, the gem of Grand Place. From the bottom, historical Brussels is just a couple of minutes away.

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
