Address
Neighbourhood: Parc du Mont-Royal
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.

Beautiful place to take in Montreal skyline
Aug. 2021
Spent a couple of hours at Chalet Du Mont Royal on a Friday afternoon. It was a very pleasant time as it was nice and quiet. About 0.5 km walk from Beaver Lake (Lac aux Castors). The actual chalet is closed (due to Covid or renovations?) so can't get anything to eat or drink while up there. We brought our own picnic food and sat on the steps of the Chalet, looking out at the beautiful view of downtown Montreal. Very peaceful place!

One of the best spots in Mont Royal
Jul. 2020 • Solo
Overlooking the open area of the lookout for the city of Montreal, this chalet stands as a place which has been turned into a museum. At the time of my visit, it was not possible to go inside due to restrictions but it sure is an interesting place to visit. There is a cafe which is a part of the chalet, accessible from behind the building.

Beautiful views of the city!
Dec. 2019
Definitely worth visiting for the views of the city. I came here with a friend on a terribly cold but beautiful day, and the Chalet also offered a perfect respite from the chilly wind. They have some historical exhibits that are interesting, and the building itself is beautiful on the inside, but it's really all about the view here.

Trek to the top, what a view!
Oct. 2019
My husband and I travelled overseas late last year with a three day stopover in Montreal. Its a nice place to visit, a lot to see and do. We walked thru Parc de Mont Royal up to the Chalet, amazing view at the top and inside there is a cafe that serves hot and cold drinks and a bite to eat, the interior hall in lovely and the artwork on the walls just adds to it. It would be an amazing setting for a wedding.

Welcomed and natural stopping point
Nov. 2019
Was a good stop for washroom and snacks during the hike around the mountain. Went at a time where it was too late for Fall activities, but too early for winter activities.

For the view of Montreal
Oct. 2019
The building itself is for most of visitors largely eclipsed by great view from the plateau. But once you are there, you will probably have a peek inside anyway. It will still most likely take backseat to the panorama of the city, but if you wish to linger longer up there, have a rest, take a seat, the Chalet is your place.

Perfect view
Aug. 2019
Overlooking Montreal and actually a beautiful park on the hill. There are 500 steps to cover getting up and down on several stairs.

Fascinating building!
Oct. 2019
Built in the 1930's, this building houses a bit of Montreal history in pictures. Unfortunately, the pictures are placed so high, it is nearly impossible to see them. However, the building sits right where the panoramas of the city can be viewed and makes a great place to take a break, including bathrooms.

Beautiful Chateau! Beautiful view!

There was preparation for a wedding going on when we were at the Chateau but we were able to peek inside to see the beautiful space. The grounds are also lovely and the view was amazing!

Nice Place for a Respite
Oct. 2019
Once you climb Mont Royal, take a few minutes to relax with a cup of tea at the Chalet. Service was friendly and prompt. French and English are spoken here. Enjoy a cup of tea and soak in the views.
