“Neat place to wander around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Nice little galleries, coffee shops, an open air market on some days of the week with local produce. You can easily spend two hours there, relaxing, walking. I'll likely return next time Im in Brussels.

“City walk sightseeing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Not even close to be as good as Grand-Place, but is one more thing to know when in Brussels.

City walk sightseeing where you will find restaurants, bars, cafés and the beautiful Belgian architecture.

“A change from the Grand Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is really a nice and pleasant place to eat or have a drink at a terraces. Many stop by for a patisserie and coffee from Wittamer which sells chocolates And pastries in different shops. this place now welcomes more bistrots and chocolatiers than even 5 years ago.
This is now becoming a shopping stop with the antique shops still not far away.
I always stop Au Sablon on each trip to Brussels.

“A must!”

Just steps away from the Grand Place, Place du Grand Sablon has it all: shops, bars, restaurants, chocolate, and a flee market in weekends.
