Rue Neuve is meant to be an exciting street and one of the best in Brussels and may be Belgium. However, we doubt that it is more than an average shopping street, with average shops, with a few exceptions. We happened to walk by this...More

Average street with main stream branded shops. There are some homeless people outside some of the shops, needs attention from the council. Best to stay inside the shopping malls.

Shopping street in the centre of the city. Near the Rogier metro station, it is a long street with shops and a big shopping mall. During the day it is a very budy and active street!

The Rue Neuve is the main shopping street of Brussels. It's about one kilometer long. Most of the shops in that street sell clothes or shoes. You can also buy books and electronics, in the City 1 department store (and there is a food court...More

Crowded, rowdy, home of the classical chains like C&A, Zara and Primark. Personally, I try to avoid this street as much as possible.
