I really liked the Carillon, shame the puppets didn't really move a lot, but it was nice to hear it. Also, nice views from the Mont des Arts into the city.

Climbing the Mont des Arts, after the Gare Centrale, you can see the huge clock which strikes the hours with lovely chimes. In the distance you see the Place Royale and the St Jacques sur Coudenberg church, with a view over the city behind you....More
