“Place to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Here you can meet the original people from Brussels with their typical Brussels dialect, go for a drink in one of the local cafés.

“Like the market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Just next to Sablon has a nice second hand market with nice atmosphere Saturdays and Sundays but not much anyway. If you walk too far you might not like what you see.

“Lively”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

neighbourhood with so many nice, special shops. Bric-a-brac on Sundays at the Jeu de Balls and all the other shops along Rue Haute and Rue Blaes are open. Mostly furniture shops and decoration shop but also lots of interesting little restaurant. Always worth a visit. Dont miss out on taking the elevator from the Palais de Justice down to the Marolles.

“A quirky place plenty of Antique Shops, Art Galleries, Second hand shops...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

If you are about to decorate your house you can make some very interesting discoveries in Marolles both new items and antiques. Also, there are plenty of various art, second hand jewelleries, bijouterie, various collector's items etc. On Sundays there is a flea market on Place du Jeu de Balle, Marolles, however, I wouldn't say it is much worth taking your time to go though the market. On sunny Sundays Marolles can be pretty packed with people as it's one of the few areas in Brussels where shops are open on Sundays. People come to stroll and have a coffee or drink in the many quirky bars around Place du Jeu de Balle.
