Situated in the best place in Brussels. It is worth walking from Palais Royal down to Mont des Arts and see the view of the city. The parc down the Mont is nothing special and there are things to see around the area.

Nice garden to visit especially in the evening after the sun goes down because they have a colorful lighting system which makes the view look amazing. Walking distance from Grand place and most of the central attractions.

The M'ont des Arts is worth to walk through, especially in the summer, as it gives a view on both the bottom of the city (Grand - place and surroundings) and the top of the city (royal palace, MIM, Constitutional Court...). However, it is always better to walk in central line instead of sides as sides are used at night... More

Steep hill, but interesting park and on the top an excellent view over the city. Worth planning walking through on your way to somewhere else
