A must see in Brussels, for the fancy window displays of chocoltier's although the most are commercially orientated like Neuhaus, Godiva etc exported overseas. For recommended purchase, would try local brands like Mary's or handmade like the chocolate line @ Brugges which has flavors of chocolates not found in other commercial establishments. A recommended tourist attraction to visit in Brussels.

Good place to shelter from the rain. Mostly did window shopping but found excellent places to buy chocolate and lace. Interesting architecture.

It's a nice shopping arcade and is good for a stroll and a browse, but that's about it. There are some eateries inside, but there are nicer places around to grab a bite, though there are a couple of good chocolatiers inside, but that's about it I'd say. Most of the shops sells their wares and leather goods but I... More

At the grand place: need to walk off a waffle: head down this way and lose some pounds from your wallett instead. Beautiful whether you are buying or not.

This is the first covered mall in Europe. Exceptionally well preserved. Worth the visit just off the Grand Place. Expect, however, every other store to be a chocolate vendor.

This is nothing more than in upscale shopping mall selling many items that no one needs. However, there are many more chocolate shops in this mall that on Grand Place, and they appear to be larger and more fully stocked. Besides if you are on your way to Grand Place, you almost certain pass this mall and you can get... More

If you cannot avoid the temptation and eat the best chocolate in the world, you should go to the Saint Hubert. All the best chocolatiers have shops there. Also a good place to avoid the rain and have a Belgian beer and some chips, or tea and cakes. There are many charming possibilitiesvp there.

We walked through here every day during our stay in Brussels, because we stayed nearby. It's a nice walk, the architecture is pleasing, and there are some interesting shop windows to browse. However, the prices are generally sky-high. It's also a nice respite from the occasional rain shower.

We like to go there when we go to town. It is a great place where you can walk a bit, look at shop windows, visit a bookshop (tropisme) and have a coffee. Built in the 1850s, this was designated as an elegant shopping gallery for the bourgeoisie. Today, the galleries offer 3 cafes, a restaurant, an an ice cream... More
