Carillon du Mont des Arts

Le Carillon du Mont des Arts is a Jacquemart Carillion clock with 24 bells found on a arch of the Mont des Arts. You can notice 12 figurines that represent important historic and folkloric figures of Brussels through the ages. Jacquemart type clocks can be recognized by the character on top which marks every hour by striking the bell with a hammer. It was built on the occasion of the 1958 World Fair that took place in the city.

  1. Will the carillon clock be repaired? It is beautiful and well worth it for tourism and school groups to visit.
