Mont-Royal Tips (20)

Favorite thing Visit Mont Royal (hence the name Montreal) for a beutiful view of the city. You can always catch a nice carriage ride up the mountain from the downtown core. Visit the main drag (St Catherine street) and Old Montreal.

Favorite thing Go to the Tam-Tams if you're going in the summer. The Tam-Tams are a culural event held every Sunday. People head off to Mount Royal at the statue and jam with african drums, whistles, flutes. They dance. It's a great place if you want to veg out on the grass in the sun after a night of partying. Just take the metro and get off at Mont Royal station. Head up the mountain. Follow the people walking around with drums, they'll lead you to it!!!!

Mont-Royal Belvedere

Favorite thing Go to the Belvedere atop Mont-Royal. The mountain dominates the city and from its top there is a magificent panoramic view of the skyline, south shore suburbs, and mountains beyond. Behind the belvedere is the Chalet du Mont-Royal, a magnificent 19th century building with high rafters and paintings chronicling the birth of New France and Montreal. I was surprised to find that the belvedere, while being a major tourist attraction, was not very crowded at all, possibly due to its wide open space and long climb to the top. To get there by foot, head to the intersection of rue Peel and Avenue des Pins and proceed into Mont-Royal Park. From here follow the signs. There are many ways to the top of the mountain, among them some very steep stairs (for those who wish to get up fast) and a serpetine path (for those biking or those who just don't like walking up steep slopes). You can also drive or take a bus to the top.

Favorite thing climb that one mountain in the middle of the city called mont-royal and see the whole city at night.
its gorgeous.

Fondest memory in a sick and twisted way, i often miss the -45c windchill when i'm on my x-mas vacation in the heat.

Take a walk on the Mont-Royal....

Favorite thing Take a walk on the Mont-Royal. This mountain, that gave the name to the city, is in the middle of the city. It's a funny feeling to start walking in this park because you don't feel in the middle of a large city. Nice place for nature lovers. The park also offers great view of the city.

On Sunday afternoons, if you are feeling a bit hippy, go to the bottom of the mountain, next to the statue and just sit back in the grass or dance to the sounds of the Tam-Tams. People gather around this statue with their percussions and just jam with all the others. Some of the people that are there are an organized group, but others just go there with their instruments.

Bring a picnic and enjoy. There used to be a lot of pot smoking and dealing there, but the police did a big clean-up and there is far less now.

Although I've never been there at night, I would not recommend it. The bushes seem to move a whole lot in some parts of the mountain...
