If you're near Mont des Arts Park or wandering back down towards Grand Place or Gare Central from the Palace, keep an eye out for this charming clock, which is striking and unusual in its design and execution.

We almost missed this stunning clock . Thankfully we were passing and it started ringing. It was just lovely. Hiding around a corner and hard to find

This is a stunning piece of work and worth seeing. The clock has 12 statues in alcoves and the bells ring on the hour. The bell that rings the hours is huge and has a statue that rings the bell. Very interesting.

I came across this by accident but had to stop and watch when it started chiming. It's just up the road from the central train station.
