From city downtown being on Grand Place it is bit of climbing 🧗‍♀️ to get to Royal 👑 palace or take a walk to see the panorama of whole city at Poelaert place. If problem to walk you manage to get there by tram 🚃. There is monument for soldiers who died in First and Second World War as well

The view of the city is very nice both in sunshine and in when the sun goes down. Many people are sitting enjoying the view.

This is a great place to get sweeping views of much of Brussels, as it sits atop a cliff in the middle of the city. It was pretty clear for us that day, and we were easily able to make out Atomium in the distance. Keep an eye out for a plaque which acts as a visual aid, to help you understand some of the sights you are seeing.

Massive square, one of the biggest, with a column in it. You get views of the city from here but alot of it are new builds and construction.

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.
