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.

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

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.
