Royal Observatory of Belgium
UTC timezone



The observatory is located in the southern part of Brussels called Ukkel/Uccle and is better known for its nice houses and  embassies than for touristic attractions. There is only one hotel near the observatory.

Best Western County House of Brussels (Heldenplein/Square des Héros 2-4)

Access to venue by public transport (also see the tab Travel Information in the main menu)

  • go to bus stop "Héros/Helden" (De Frélaan/Avenue de Fré; 50m from the hotel), take bus 43 (direction Observatoire/Sterrenwacht) and get off at the final stop "Observatoire/Sterrenwacht". This journey takes <10 minutes; walking will take about 30 minutes. <overview of "Héros/Helden">
  • The advantage of this hotel is that it also connect quite well to the city center (and Brussels-South/Midi railway station) by Tram 4.

Alternatively, you can book a hotel further away and use public transport that passes close to the observatory.

The observatory is served directly by Bus #60 and #43. The stop is called "Observatoire/Sterrenwacht" and for B43 it is the endpoint (and departure point).

B43 connects to Trams 4 (T4) and T92 at the stop "Helden/Héros"

B60 connects to T3. B60 stops at "Cavell" an then its a 5 min walk to "Churchill" where T3 departs.


Below there are some hotels located further away but that connect reasonably well to the Observatory by bus or  tram.

Pullman Brussels Center Midi, Hotel Ibis Brussels Midi, Novotel Brussels Center Midi

Along the Tram 92 line:
