Beautiful church in a pleasant, busy square. Lots of energy and things happening nearby. Wandering this way is worth it and the church creates nice scenery.

Restaurants, cute little streets, but also filth on the street that isn't cleaned often. On a sunny evening, sit out and have a bite one of the restaurants - stay away from touristy ones but prefer more where the locals go!

Beautiful area not far from the Grand Place. Many restaurants located here but fish is the specialty. Go in the evening and stroll around checking out all the restaurants before making a decision. Like everywhere, the fish restaurants are rather pricy.

Great square, intersected by a big thousand year old church, with a lively section with cafés and restaurants on Bourse side and a big market square with metro access on the other. Lovely spot to visit.
