  • 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.
