I liked that this area was quieter than Grand Place. Much less touristy. It has some nice little parks and fountains. Some fancy shops and art galleries. And some good cafes and restaurants in the area. La Pain Qoutidien is a great brunch spot across...More

So much to choose from, where to start and where to finish. Shops filled with lovliness. Outdoors, beautiful floral work in abundance, architecture, life.

Where the Belgians strut their stuff... about the last place left in the centre where they still do. Wittamer the patissier remains unjustifiably snobby and expensive, Costermans the antiquaire retains its glorious (and for most of us inaccessible) display of the finest antiques, au Vieux...More

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.

It is a Perfect Place to look for jewellery, antiques, paintings etc. on the stalls there and then have a light lunch or something similar at one of the Nice cafes there. Surprised that so little has changed there since I lived in Brussels Close...More

Don't miss the square, with its restaurants, bars and antique shops; the cathedral: the lovely Petit Sablon park, with statues of local heros.

Being seen in Sablon is still the big thing. It is a nice square with many small shops, some nice furniture shops, cafes etc. It is nice but a bit overrated. There is an oyster cafe at the corner. There is a tea shop which...More
