  • 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.  more »
  • It's basically a square, nothing more than that. Has a few restaurants, some bars. Stop by here to go to the Church of Notre Damme

  • One of the most elegant in the city surrounded by many bars, restaurants and quality chocolate always very crowded. It is bordered in its upper part by the imposing Cathedral. On weekends has always a good antiques market (there are also many art galleries and antique shops). One of the most beautiful and liveable cities of Brussels.

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
