Lucky this is close by our hotel. Vast square with a column in it ( that is worth seeing). It does have a reasonable view over the city.

Great view on the city of Brussels. Unfortunately, people are throwing their trash on a rooftop under the viewpoint. The local government doesn't same to bother cleaning up, since the pile of trash is very big not to say massive. Same goes for the graffiti....More

I took an afternoon walk to this place and it was nice. Here is one of places in brussels which you may enjoy the city view from above. You can see the Brussels Basilica away from this place, like it. Good to visit this place...More
