  • lovely things to see inside, guided tours are recommended. cafes and shops around the church. not to be missed. 
  • We were here for the Christmas market, the square lends itself to this kind of events in size and shape, is comfortable and is connected to the metro which emerges directly in the middle of the square itself. Highly recommended over the Christmas period.

  • A most beautiful place in Brussels with great restaurants ("bij den boer") bars. In the summer people sit by the water. In winter times the heart of the Christmas market is here
  • Nice place as Always. Wonderful restaurants and cafés around. To visit during Christmas with its warm market
  • Very beautiful place, with nice local bars and restaurants. During the Christmas there is also a very nice market that you should visit.
  • Very nice place to chill out. Lots of bars and restaurants in the area.
  • A nice little place next to city center. Only the constant group of homeless people next to the church is small nuisance.
