It's well worth the price to take the tour... very informative and interesting if you're interested in how Brussels began.

“Short distance away from Grand Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Only about 10 mins walk away, this place is also filled with things to see. Saw a comic store where you can find Tin Tin and Smurf books, keychains and others. Several big brands of chocolates are also found here like the Wittamer and Pierre Marcolini. There are several restaurants around here as well.

Right next to it is the Notre Dam Du Sablon, which is a beautiful church!

“Great weekend antiques market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Find one of a kind treasures that you'll never find back in the states. Along the border of the Sablon are some wonderful restaurants, chocolatiers, funky galleries. Go! You won't be sorry.
