This is a great place to view the city from with views sometimes out to the Atomium. I came across it completely by accident wandering around getting lost on my last day so couldn't attempt to tell you exactly where in tne city it is!

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.

You definitely get a view out over the city from this spot, but I'm not sure it's worth writing home about.

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. The people that violate their city by throwing trash and spraying graffiti should be ashamed of themselves!

Other than that: enjoy the view.
