Rue Neuve, Brussels

1.6
#3 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Brussels
The second most popular shopping street in Belgium, the pedestrian thoroughfare of Rue Neuve is lined with luxury boutiques. The upper floors of the buildings represent some of the most expensive residential flats in the city. The street runs from Place Charles Rogier to Place de la Monnaie with hundreds of shops in between. If exclusive shopping isn't your cup of tea, you can still pop into one of the many chocolate shops to buy some traditional Belgian candies. In the center of the street you may notice an antiquated building that stands out from the predominantly modern architecture. This is the Church of Our Lady of Finistere, a church that was once the avenue's namesake.

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.
