Even if you dont know French the show is worth it! Amazing experience! After the show is finished you can have some beer and food in their pub which is also full of puppets and magical atmosphere.

When I first learned of the existence of a place to watch puppet theatre and taste beer, I knew I must go there! Surprisingly easy to find, it caps off an evening perfectly. I walked easily there from Grand Place and while the entire production...More
