All my friends know which is my favorite place in Brussels…the esplanade at the end of the Mont des Arts. In itself is nothing special, but when you arrive there at sunset and it’s a clear sky day, then you will immediately understand why I like it so much.
There’s a nice view of place d’Espagne and the town hall tower in Grand Place. But the colors are the ones that strike me. It’s impossible to describe a sunset, so just take a chance and check out this place!
The area around is also one of the most interesting for museums: within a 2 minute walk you can find the Musical Instruments Museum (check the Musical Instruments article) in a magnificent art nouveau building, the Magritte Museum, the Museum de Fin De Siecle, the Bozar and many more.
Going down the stairs towards the center you can find a nice lit up garden and a new restaurant/bar/disco bar, the Kwint. I’ve never tried it, but the location for an aperitif at sunset is the perfect one!
