This was a favourite haut on previous visits and it's still beautiful - but it's in decline. There are still some unique shops, but more for browsing, than buying. It needs a boost, but not by allowing mass market 'stack it high, sell it cheap'...More

Very cute "Place" with all the chocolateries you can imagine. You must go there have a coffee and try some chocolates. My personal favorite is Wittamer.

We went there on a Sunday for the antiques market, and we were not at all disappointed. I have added a review about that market separately. If you have difficulties walking, you need to contemplate taking a city bus up there.

Beautiful, picturesque, grand, great architecture and definitely worth a visit whenever you're in Brussels. We always venture to this area when we visit. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

We wondered around the Sablon neighbourhood and found this square. There are few nice cafes and chocolate shops here. It's clean and nice to past through.
