I am probably not 'a flea market connoisseur' type person, but still went to visit what was all the fuss about and mainly was disappointed. The flea market is what it is - a flea market with most of the vendors showcasing their sell either...More

The area is very nice. Just as we made it to the market, we decided to have a drink first. I didn't think we were in the quirky pub that long, but when we came out, the market had packed up! It was only 2:30....More

Located on the lower side of the Palace of justice, is this trendy area, with many restaurants and bars to frequent. The flea market is also a must visit, it is fun to explore the streets during the walk back to the lower town.

The attraction is the whole quarter. Parking on the street is possible but sparse. There is a lot to look and see. A lot of bars, restaurant and shops are located there. The architecture of the buildings is interesting, like in nouveau art style.

Great place to go for a weekend stroll (many shops are closed on weekdays): there's lots of vintage clothing stores, antique furniture places, a flea market on Place du Jeu de Balle, many restaurants and cafés, tattoo parlours... Typical Brussels district - must see.

I've lived in Brussels for a year, just a little over a mile away, and knew nothing about Les Marolles district. We discovered it by walking around on car-free Sunday and were happily surprised by Rue Haute and Rue Blaes. There are so many wonderful...More
