Great place to visit and find some nice secondhand stuff.

We have visit this square several times and always found something "new" to buy. It is especially nice to be there on a Sunday. There are several cafe's next to it where to can... read more

It's nice flea market with many second hand stuff. At first sight you may think there's nothing interesting, but after some searching you can buy great glasses and plates and vinyls from 60's only for 2,5euro! Don't expect there any antiques.

It was really interesting to see this part of Brussels, as it feels like stepping into another, more diverse world (as opposed to the central parts further up). However, I did not find the Quartier as charming as expected. There were interesting second-hand shops but they were far between and although some parts were nice the overall impression was that...

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

IT is one of the few places left in the capital where you can experience real life as it was in the old times. go to place of the jeau de balle..stroll at the market, then go to eat at le clef d' or and there try a croquue madam with a draft leffe blond ..you'll go back in time..

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
