“Excellent Shopping Experience”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Just up from the Grand Place, near a shop devoted to TinTin. Very good selection of shops selling from chocolates to clothes, with all sorts in-between. Great for window shopping, and the people in the shops are very welcoming.

“Expensive shops”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Oldest place with shops in Brussels. Very interesting to visit but the shops are expensive but still worth a look and a nice coffee shop there too.

“fine place with great shops”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Are a beautiful galeries, with lots of shops, mostly upmarked, a great option to shopping or at least to take a look, the galeries are roofed, then a great palce to be while raining, very common in Brussels. Several shops, specially chocolate ones, open very late.

“Nice place to shop”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

It is a glazed shopping arcade. Back in its early days, it was a place the rich and famous would go to attend meetings. Its neo-Renaissance styling sports a vaulted glass room which lets the light in during the day while protecting shoppers from the elements.

There is a simple straight pathway with openings on either end and lined on both sides with booksellers, chocolate shops, cafes, and other shops. The window displays are wonderful and worth walking through even just to window shop. It also makes a nice short-cut getting from one part of the city to another without having to walk around the building.

Chocolate lovers should visit Neuhaus, the best chocolate-maker in this chocolate-mad country; they claim to have invented pralines in this shop. You can buy prettily wrapped boxes of the “best-in-the-world” chocolate to take home.
