“Beautiful glass-covered shopping center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Before there were nondescript malls all over America, there was the Galerie St Hubert, the model for numerous other glass-covered shopping "streets" throughout Europe. Chocolate shops rule the roost, although several clothiers and restaurants are here too, as well as an independent cinema (in French, of course).

“Nice to walk through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

If you're heading to the Grand Place don't forget to pass these Galeries.
You'll see a beautiful scenario of fashion and chocolate shops, and there is a nice cafe inside if you feel like stoping by. There's always people moving in and out from the shops, very good environment.

“Posh chocs”

So many chocolate shops and no idea of whether you're really going to appreciate the quality vs the price.
