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.

In the summer months the Mont des Arts park is a wonderful place to visit during the day. From Coudenburg Palace to the statue of Albert I, this park is strikingly beautiful; however, this is also the place where many homeless people spend the night. It is common to see several dozen people sleeping on the sidewalk along the National... More

You can walk up the hill away from the Grand Place and headed for the Museums at the top of the hill and this garden is on the way up the hill. Its a pleasant and pretty place to stop, take in the sun, and decide what you are doing next.

We passed here at night, returning to hotel from a concert. And thankfully it was down hill. There were different color light and young people hanging out. Beautiful view over the center, but you won't miss lots not seeing this place.

The gardens at the Mont des Arts are very beautiful and colorful. There are parterres and inside the parterres are many flowers and plants with color. This is an excellent place to take photos and the vistas are very good. The equestrian statue of Albert I is very good too.

Rarely nice. Only when it's sunny and you don't mind the derelict surroundings. It features a garden below that is more attractive then the heavy traffic area on top.
