Nice walk with beautiful antiques shops

Very charming area with some very interesting local antiques and a very nice bar with a very cool corner decoration. It is very pleasant to walk among these streets

The square is really good for shopping (especially for those who want chocolate). On sundays there is a little market with interesting stuff

Filled with food stores, cafes, a gorgeous cathedral that hosts the odd concert, an antiques market in front of the church itself on Saturdays and Sundays, It is lovely. if you enjoy shopping in little local stores, this is perhaps the most interesting area of the city. i And it is centered on the loveliest park in Brussels, Jardin du...

Of course it is a niche place in the city-center of Brussels, with old houses and some awesome chocolate and antique stores , but it is not a really outstanding place where you have to go in Brussels. Especially the parking space in the middle of the place is really not fitting.

This area has some alleys where you can find from excelent chocolate to some artist exposition, it's also a "fancy" place so mind look at the prices before buy anything

Go and see the antique stalls on a week end at the Grand Sablon. You can even stay at a local hotel on the place. Great little bars and restaurants along the place make this a great stay.

This area situated nearby Sablon, one of the old parts of the city, offers characteristic European casual style cafes, waffle and chocolate houses. It's a must to stroll around its small streets or seat outside to look around. The " Gallery de la Reine" is a nearby arcade where many renown chocolate houses find their home as well as some...
