A very vibrant neighborhood with historical buildings on backdrops especially when hosting Christmas market. This neighborhood also offers some real nice place for having food and coffee. It almost feel like a fair during December.

If you want to go just beyond the tourist track, go to this location and explore the area in the vicinity. A short walk beyond you will find a wonderful boulevard with many excellent restaurants, including La Marie Joseph.

Place Ste. Catherine offers a lot to visitors: historic buildings and churches, shops, cafes, brasseries, bistros, small organic markets, and a fish and seafood market where you can eat some freshly made and wash it down with a glass of white wine. The surrounding area is also very inviting and interesting to explore, such as rue de Flandres and rue... More

A small square surrounded with small bars and cafess, and at night many people gather around. Enjoy your dinner in a nice restuarant around here and watch the square while enjoying your wine.

Place Sainte Catherine is near one of the towers of one of the medieval walls that surrounded Brussels in the past. Today, this place has many seafood restaurants.

Beautiful historical site, full of good bars, restaurants and stores. St Catherine is a must go in Brussels. A place full of art, events and nice places to drink, eat and shop. Don't miss a croquette at the Mer du Nord and a drink at Le Monk.

Right of Sainte Catherine Church, ensconced between the walls of a hotel, stands a medieval tower: La Tour Noire. It is a key vestige of the first city ramparts and dates back to the 13th century, - naturally it has been restored over the ages. Scout about some more and you'll find all manner of remains (big and small) from... More

A. Dry pretty little area but rather removed from everything else. It's not too far a walk from the grand place but probably not worth it unless you are into architecture.
