When in Brussels, allow a little time for yourself to observe the city from above. No matter how flat it might appear at first, and it is definitely not the highest EU capital, there are still viewpoints you can easily access by walking around the city. Most importantly, they are admission–free, so all you have to do is know the exact location and put that little effort needed into reaching the six spots suggested below.

You can enjoy this beautifully isolated panorama over Brussels by taking Tram 51, which can be combined with an interesting visit to the Church of Saint Augustin, famous for its art deco architecture and rooftop view, also located here.

Parc Reine-Verte

There is a secret hideaway at the end of this neighborhood park, located in Schaerbeek overlooking the city. The Brussels skyline, as seen from this viewpoint, offers an architecturally-interesting urban mix. When the weather permits, it can surprise you with a beautiful panorama.
