Going to museums in Brussels was my first priority in visiting Belgium. Do you like Bruegel? The Royal Museum of Fine Art is your spot. The present exhibit is titled, Bruegel. Unseen Masterpieces When art meets technology An extra treat is a careful and thoughtful closeup view and interpretation of Bruegel paintings using contemporary technology. And then there is the...

From the stairs you have a magnificent view on the roofs of the city centre and it's tower. Just a few steps up the hill you can visit musea (exemple: Margritte museum) and om the 'Mont' there's the magnificent building of the Music Instrument Museum.

This place is very beautiful and view from here is stunning. You could take a little walk or Metro train ride from the city center, but it's so worth it. There are many shops and place to eat near by. But most importantly, take your camera and shoot some pictures, then get immersed in the stunning view.

It was first meant to be a quick stop, but we ended up sitting on the stairs for quite some time, admiring the sunset and taking lost of photos. The next day we enjoyed its shade for a quick lunch and that was amazing too. This was the best view in Brussels, please go and enjoy it!

Great place for a picture moment as they also allowed a short stop if you are driving. No heavy traffic maybe its the off hours (4pm?). Nearby an ice cream van serves great ice cream. Shouldn't miss.

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.
