Yes, you read that right, our last viewpoint of the best free-of-charge views of Brussels is a car park. It may not be the most glamorous place in Brussels but it is the car park in Brussels with the the best views of the city. It is for this reason that many young people from Brussels use the last floor of this building to have a picnic or to sunbathe.
It is halfway between the metro station De Broukère and Sainte Catherine Church. All you have to do is go and climb up to the tenth floor. If you look towards the south you will see the Palace of Justice. On your left you will see the Royal Palace which many compare to the Palace of Versailles; and remember that if the the Belgian flag is on the top of the Palace, this means that the king is in the country. Towards the east you will see the City Hall tower, and to the east the two towers of the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula that, like the towers of Notre Dame de Paris, have been left unfinished; but that's not the only similarity between the cathedral of Brussels and Paris, hence the Brussels cathedral is known as "la petite Notre Dame".
If you find it difficult to go outside the city to enjoy a good view, as in the case of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the Atomium or the Cinquantenaire Park, or simply you don’t have enough time and you're on the streets of central Brussels doing shopping, buying chocolate, eating French fries or even a waffle, you can always go to this viewpoint, next to the Grand Place.
