I love getting away for the expected when on holidays and the walk though the neighbourhood was really beautiful. Take the lift to Palais of Justice for breathtaking views if the city.

Being here is like being inan other city. I believe it is the poor neighborhood and this is obvious on the buildings. It is also very dirty but despite this it is charming. Big flea market at Place de Jeu de Balle, and many galleries, studios, art shops, little cafes, 2nd hand shops. It is nice to wonder around and... More

You'll either love this area or hate it. If you are interested in flea markets, little independent cafes and bars, galleries, and retro shop after retro shop, you can spend several hours happily wandering around. Given the number of new shops and galleries around, I suspect this is a very up and coming area of the city. It's a great... More

There is a great Flea-market in this area (Vossenplein) , it's on every day from 7 am -14 pm. Also the surrounding streets are packed with antique and second-hand shops.

I went there on a guided tour and was not disappointed. There are many Art Deco buildings and one can see examples of architecture of buildings constructed to house poor people in the 1920s. Many parts of the Quartier were destroyed in order to make way for the new boulevards and sites, so few of the buildings are very old,... More

Try it ! You'll find out it's very relaxing to just wander past all the 'bric-à-brac' and do a bid now and then. My advice: don't buy too quickly. And, when you want a lower price: 1.Don't call your companion over to have a special look; 2. You don't have to make a lower bid, just walk away as if... More

There is an amazing flea market. Here you buy old items, antiques, junk and just about everything. Free toilet is on the square. Free parking space for the car is hard to find.

The Quartier Marolles is nothing exceptional. While there are many shops, they are not the best. The neighborhood is not the best to visit.
