"Great View from the Coudenberg" Koningsplein - King's square Tip by filipdebont

  View on the Palais de Justice
by filipdebont
 
 

The Koningsplein (King's Square) is located on hill named the Coudenberg (berg means mountain - and as Belgium is kind of a flat country we like to give our hills mountain names).

As this is a higher spot in Brussels, you gave a great view in different directions.

Best is to stand near the statue of Godfried van Bouillon in the middle of the square.

Then you have a great view over the Kunstberg (Art mountain) and in the other direction you have a great view on the Palace of Justice (see picture).

Address: Koningsplein
Directions: Off Rue de la Régence, Rue Montagne de la Cour, Rue Royale, Borgendaalgang, & Naamsestraat
