I believe many people are like me, when traveling in a city, would search for a view spot to get a panorama view over the city. Today I’d like to show my dear Steemit friends the best viewpoint in Brussels city, Place Poelaert. Being at a rather elevated level, the Poelaert square, where the huge Justice Palace is located, offers a breathtaking view of the city.
Brussels is not that big so everywhere is basically walkable, but Place Poelaert is located in the higher part of the city, to get there, you can also take a tram 93 or 92 fromSablon and Palace area, or take a lift from the lower part of the city, Les Marolles.

The lift is behind the comic wall.
Of course from Les Marolles to get up to the Justice Palace, you can also take the stairs.

The higher part of Brussels is less residential. In the old times, those with more wealth lived here while the working-class lived in the lower part of the city. Nowadays, you can find all the designer shops and some beautiful art nouveau houses inAvenue Louise, near the Justice Palace.
I always think Justice palace is the most beautiful building in Brussels, with numerous decorations, columns and stairs. you can see its tremendous golden dome from miles away.
Place Poelaert, It was built between 1866 and 1883 by the architect Joseph Poelaert.
Come here on a clear day, bring some beer or snacks, enjoy the amazing view.
