What people say

"A wonderful architectural complex of buildings and structures, works of sculptural art, a library and a wonderful garden with plenty of space to relax after a walk. There are a lot of flowers and plants, very beautiful views of the city, where you can take memorable photos and meet a sunset."
"This garden was very nice to stroll through to get a slight relief from all the business of the city. It was originally built in 1910, but adapted in the 1950s and resorted in 2001. It also provides fantastic views! Price: Free"
"It's home to the Royal Library and National Archives. But the best part is the view of Brussels from the top! It’s also a nice park and has cool graffiti murals. "

Mentioned in these guides

Brussels, the capital of Europe, is a thriving international city full of delicious food and amazing sights. Though many people choose to visit Bruges over Brussels, don't discount this city. Almost nothing can compare to seeing Grand-Place in person. Just because Brussels is a political hub does not mean the city does not have extraordinary churches, museums and plenty of fun activities. ____________________ What's Included: 🏡Recommended Stay Options 🏛️Significant Sites & Churches 🏤Museums 🪺Greenspaces 🎇Nightlife 🧇Great Eats 🚙Transit & General Info 🚎Day Trips Worth Considering See "Day Trips Worth Considering" if your trip leaves you with extra time for exploring beyond the city limits. ____________________ A sneak peak of the helpful info in this guide: "Important: Pedestrians do NOT have the right-of-way in Brussels. TRAMS have the right-of-way, then the police, then pedestrians. Before crossing the street, check an additional time for trams. Bruxelles Midi is by far the most dangerous place is the city. Pickpockets are always there and they may not even try to be stealthy. As far as I have heard, they won't physically harm you, but they might try to take your things. Keep your hands and your eyes on your luggage." ____________________ Fun Fact: Did you know the Brussels is known as a comic book hub?
