It was a very decorative area although not a great deal in it, there is a chocolatier and a few shops. Very nice architecture and possibly might be more buzz in the summer if people are sitting out in it.

Nearly every shop in this area was specifically selling Belgian Chocolates - which obviously for chocolate lovers is pure heaven! However, it would have been nice to have seen a few more shops offering different things in its window.

This is a nice chique indoor shopping alley. There is lots of chocolate stores. There are also some jewelry, clothes, and other stores. Prices are higher end, but not extreme (though you can get a 90000 euro vacheron constantin). We visited on Sunday, during which most of the non-chocolate stores were closed.

Built before the era of department stores, these galleries were an attempt to create a space where people could walk around without being bothered by the weather. There are a lot of fashionable shops, cafés and restaurants. And indeed, it is quite wet on the streets in Brussels, so it really is a good idea to spend an hour there... More

Ended up here by accident on our first day and visited every day afterwards. Lots of reasonably priced cafes. Some high end shops but also lots of tourist shops. Many chain chocolatiers are located in here. Architecture of the mall itself is amazing! Well worth visiting for this alone.

Close to the station and a nice place to stop, rest, sit, enjoy a coffee and admire the ceiling. Take your camera as you'll want to take some pictures as well.

Good place to stroll and window shop. Lots of chocolate shops book stores clothing stores, even a theater and cinema. Try to walk through when the crowds are gone early or late in the day.

A great example of turn-of-the-century shopping arcades, beautifully preserved and atmospheric. Great to wander through and window-shop or - as we did - buy chocolates ate 10,.0 in the evening! There seem to be cinemas inside, so plan to come back and explore again!

Centrally located, this is a "do-not-miss" if one is in the area of the Grand Place. I have been to the Galeries many, many times since the mid-70s and I go just about every time I am back in Brussels.. Other have commented on what you will find so I will not repeat those comments. All can say is --... More
