Rue Neuve, Brussels

(1.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The truth is that you will not find nearly any shop that there is in any country, but is recommended for a good ride, I lack nothing: Primark, H & M, ZARA, The body shop, etc. That Yes, I recommend visiting it in the morning or afternoon, night scene is... bleak.

  • Took this route for easy access to the key tourist spots but was routinely panhandled so watch your wallet. 
  • Many people in this great street full of shops where to do your shopping. There is a granddddd, Primark and a Hema grandddd. they are in the middle of the street next to the other. sometimes Primark asks us to queue to enter. but it goes fast. Nothing really new, but serial shoppers will find their happiness.
