I really liked the Carillon, shame the puppets didn't really move a lot, but it was nice to hear it. Also, nice views from the Mont des Arts into the city.

Just a 10 minute walk up the hill from the central Grand Place and you have all the major art galleries in one place, Musical Instrument museum (pay extra 2 euros for the audio guide, well worth it) Magritte gallery, Bozar, Royal Museum of Fine...More

Climbing the Mont des Arts, after the Gare Centrale, you can see the huge clock which strikes the hours with lovely chimes. In the distance you see the Place Royale and the St Jacques sur Coudenberg church, with a view over the city behind you....More

Very disappointing and really not worth seeing....you climb up steps to the gardens which are very formal flower plantings and not very big ....they had drone competition over the flower beds when we were there and we cant figure out why they would choose this...More

Lovely ´hang-out´spot in the art district with beautiful views over Brussels. Also a good spot to enjoy a cocktail in the evening.

Amazing views of Brussels, great atmosphere and often the centre of parties. Is right next to the Royal palace and the music museum.

Perfect right in the heart of Brussels, so to say! It has special significance and I encourage all to tour.

Great square in the art district. The view from the top on the lower art f the city is great. Here you can also find a lot of culture or music events.

This area serves as a fine scenic area in Brussels and has a proud monument in front. It is a way away from the Grand Palace but is manageable by bus and a very long walk. There will be many people there for the views...More

What on earth is this place? (1 Replies)
On our trip to Brussels, we saw lots of great sights, most of which we knew by name. But this was unexpected, so we took a few pictures. I know it might not be significant but it looked a bit old and the fact that it remained at all seemed strange (though there were no signs identifying it). http://www.flickr.com/photos/48074113@N07/ Any ideas? It is in or near the Marolles/Marollen district between Kapellekerk and Carillon du Mont des Arts (if that helps). Thanks for any ideas/help...More

Aloft or Sheraton for access to the SQUARE convention center (2 Replies)
Hi, trying to decide between the Sheraton and the Aloft. Would like easiest access to the SQUARE convention center on rue Mont des Arts . Is one better located via subway. I've stayed at the Sheraton before but Aloft looks preferable if location and access is ok. Thanks in advance.

Neither is particularly convenient, but I guess Aloft would have a slight edge (especially if you are coming to BRU as the airport bus stops at Schuman). From Aloft, you would have to walk from up the hill to Schuman metro station (which is currently being reconstructed) and take the metro to Gare centrale. From the Sheraton at Rogier, you would have to take the pre-metro 1 stop to De Brouckère, change using the walkway between the tram and metro parts of that station, and then take the metro...More

Mont des Arts carillon clock not working? (1 Replies)
Hi, We did a walk around Brussels today and our guide book told us that the figures move on the hour, at the carillon clock on Mont des Arts. We waited but the hour came and went and the figures didn't move. Does anyone know if it is broken? Thanks,
