The Mont des Arts is up the street from the Centraal Train Station and is a pleasant walk from the Grand Place. The gardens are surrounded by various museums and the Royal Library. A big clock with splendid decorative elements and chimes that ring. There are also shops and places to eat. From the top of the hill, you can... More

Always a pleasure to stop there, for the view and historical palace with a big clock on the wall, the statues of puppets and the bells. Nice garden .

You can find people resting among the gardens, street artists playing music, drawing graffiti on the walls. And the place is also very beautiful.

This area is so beautiful with trees and flowers growing and many benches to sit on and relax. If you climb the stairs towards the museums, there is a great view of the city.

Between Grande place and Sablon, you find this gem which is most enjoyable when it's sunny outside! An iconic place in Brussels!

While the square itself isn't the greatest place to visit -- it's spoiled by busy traffic and dangerous to traverse by foot -- the climb up the hill is worth the effort. Don't forget to take a look at the royal palace around the corner!

The view from the Mont des Arts down to the Grand Place is one of the most beautiful in the city. The garden has nice lights at night and in the summer the Brussels Summer Festival has concerts here.

Just outside central Station, the Hill of Arts (Mont des Arts) is a perfect area to walk around, chillax, listen to some good street music and maybe visit the Fine Arts Museum if you are interested. You can also have a nice view over the central area of Brussels.
