  • high place, chill ambiance with a view on the city and a park, close to the museum of music instruments (for a cultural visit) or places to hangout and have a drink  more »
  • This is a nice place which is on higher ground and offers some views of the city. Suitable to visit both during the day and at night.  more »
  • Amazing view! We had an amazing weather when we visited this place. There are seats available wherein you can grab a beer or eat your favourite waffle which is usually a van located above the stairs.
  • A great garden area a little outside the main square in Brussels. Lots of flowers in the garden, and there's a nice fountain too. at the top, there's another fountain and a arch made of bicycles painted gold. You could definitely spend half an hour here enjoying the view of downtown from the top, and sitting in the garden. Worth a visit!
