Great, must see near the centre

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.

Take a 2 minute walk right from the Brussels Central Station and you end up on the beautiful stairs of Mont des Arts. Strongly recommend to climb up towards the palace, the view is worth the walk.

I suppose that what always gets me is the architecture and the layout of the buildings! This one was both in a perfect location and had a classic feeling! I did loved it!

walk from the grand place all the way to bozar and you'll see beautiful gardens, a nice view of Brussels and historical buildings. and it's probably not even 1 km.
