CENTRe OF TOWN
For anyone who discovers Brussels for the first
time we recommend our walks in the city center. The guide takes
the group along all the classic attractions and the most charming places
of the pentagon: the Stock Exchange, the Grand Place,
the Saint-Hubert Galleries, the Fish Market, the bustling Saint- Géry
and the hip Saint- Jacobs.
Brussels, a boring city? We'll prove you wrong! The neighbourhood of the "Vismet", the old port of Brussels, lies right in the centre of the city and has a lot to offer. In addition to the many vibrant bars and restaurants, the area includes some surprisingly beautiful places like the Old Beguinage, the Pacheco Hospice and the Bellona House.
ixelles - art nouveau
Original boutiques, vibrant restaurants and fashionable people adorn the Chatelain square in Ixelles. But this neighbourhood, just off the Avenue Louise, is more than just trendy. Behind every corner lurks a gem of Art Nouveau architecture: Victor Horta, Henry van de Velde, Paul Hankar...
The Marolles is known for its folky and social character. An authentic,
charming piece of Brussels south of the centre. We discover the small, charming streets, the flea market, the pawn shop and much more!
Just behind the popular Marolles you can find one of the most exquisite
places in Brussels: the Sablon. Rich buildings such as the Egmont
Palace or the Music Conservatory demonstrate the mundane nature
of yesteryear. Even today, this neighbourhood still has a very posh
character with its many antique shops, cosy streets and chocolate
Nowhere else in Brussels you can find a greater contrast than between the Sablon and Marolles. No need to choose this time because we discover both areas. The boundaries between high and low, rich and poor, smart and authentic are literally exceeded. And after the tour you finally know the difference between antiques and a flea market!
