The Mont des Arts garden is located below place Royale and provides a green transition between the upper and lower parts of the city, between the Royal Quarter and the Grand-Place in the city's historical centre.
Originally built for the 1910 Universal Exhibition, it was adapted in the 1950s to form part of the vast urban complex of the Mont des Arts. The Mont des Arts "complex" includes the KBR (formerly the Royal Library); a shopping and office gallery on the other side of the street appropriately named the "Mont des Arts"; the Square congress centre, with its glass cube and statue of Albert I; gardens and esplanades and finally an underground car park...
The current garden was restored in 2001.
Don't miss the sound of the carillon, located in the lower part of the covered passageway, which brings joy to tourists and Brussels residents alike!
