Going to a city midweek often rules out markets-except for fruit and veg ones. The wednesdat market in Place de Chatelain is predominantly food and drink but its a really good experience. Its that elusive experience we are usually all after when away on holiday- a local experience. Its just lots and lots of people browsing, tadting, shopping and eating-... More

Cosy place to have lunch or afternoon tea or just to chat with friends. I did lost first time when I was driving there, but overall it's pretty easy to get to. For me it is a special place because the wedding boutique where I bought my dress is situated there. So I will always remember it.

Typical Brussels architecture, masses of restaurants, great street market on Wednesdays. The square itself is not square but nicely irregular with lots of trees. Oh, and a nearby hotel is one of the few in Brussels with good facilities for wheelchairs.

When I manage to get home early enough in the summer on a Wednesday, one of my favourite activities is to go the Chatelain market and meet with friends and soak up the atmosphere. It usually becomes a big street party with people spilling out on the street not only at the market, but also in the neighbouring bars (I... More

An area where young inhabitants of Brussels like to hang out on weekends or summer days. The Place du Chatelain itself hosts only few bars and restaurants, but the surrounding streets have more to offer. Just stroll around and discover beautiful houses, small bars and restaurants, and all sorts of shops and boutiques.

The square itself has it charms - so does the location and the streetside pubs in the even ing heaving with thirsty young things. Above al the Wednesday afternoon market should not be missed.

This is one of the loveliest areas in Brussels with lots of restaurants, bars, shops and "multi-national" hippy yuppies all. On a sunny day, you might struggle to find a place to sit down for a beer. If you love shoes shopping, you must go to De Griff where you can find discounted designer shoes.

Some nice clothes shops in the neighborhood all of which are boutiques. It's expensive to buy a place here, though renting is reasonable if you can handle the discomfort of lack of elevators. There are some nice houses in the area and some good restaurants. No bargains here. Great lebanese, wonderful "raconte moi des salades", and overrated pizza take-out where... More

I have lived in Brussels for only 4 months. I live 5 minutes away from Place du Chatelain by foot, and it is one of my favorite places because it is lively and very fun. Go on a Wednesday and it is a guaranteed good time...lots of people watching, food merchants, people to meet!
