This might sound repetitive as I say this for most of my reviews on landmarks in Brussels, but it is a beautiful place with lots of culture and grand architecture. Worth the visit and there's always something new to explore when we visit.

Didnt know where exactly we were heading and we found ourselves standing in front of this huge monument with a great view of the city. It is a nice place to walk, far away from the city lights.

Mont des Arts is a great place for a stroll, offers stunning views on Brussels old town. It leads to Royal Palace and Brussels Main Railway Station.

From the top of the hill a nice panorama view opens towards the old city center. Best light is in the afternoon. Good resting place on steps, though keep an eye on your belongings as beggars wander around.

This is a view. Its near the museums so why wouldn't you go when its there. But it really is just a view of the City Centre of Brussels so don't get too excited.

Part of walking tour, Mont des Arts has panoramic views of the of Brussels and especially the city centre. Well worth going to if you are after those views of Brussels.
