Saw this spectacular tower top from our hotel and wanted to see it up close. The road entrance was closed so made our way up into the park (about 2 floors up) and decided the view from the park of the surrounding city and countryside...More

Every Belgium city I visited has a bell tower which is very unique. They used it not as bell, but also as observation point for enermies in old days. This bell tower looks much newer than the cathedral but it's beautiful.

Good views and pleasant small park overlooking the city for a stroll in. Worth considering getting a city pass if planning to see more than one or two of the attractions.

In rain and wind this place is nice to visit, but not a must. The park was closed due to wind when I visited, and the view was nothing more than OK because of the rain. In sunshine, I would guess that the experience is...More

It's a gentle incline to walk up to the tower but once we got there we (and another tourist couple) couldn't find our way in. Somehow we had come to a locked door which said it was only for groups. It's not easy being stupid!...More
