I liked that this area was quieter than Grand Place. Much less touristy. It has some nice little parks and fountains. Some fancy shops and art galleries. And some good cafes and restaurants in the area. La Pain Qoutidien is a great brunch spot across...More

Place du Grand Sablon is a nice place to visit and has a number of site seeing attractions, restaurants, coffee shops and bars around the area. The market was not on when we arrived. However, while we were visiting, we enjoyed the enclosed garden area...More

So much to choose from, where to start and where to finish. Shops filled with lovliness. Outdoors, beautiful floral work in abundance, architecture, life.

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.

Unless, its a market day, then the centre of this triangular "square" is a car park. Yes, the shops are often designer ones / antiques / sushi bars but its not worth a trek out to find to be honest.

We went there on a Sunday for the antiques market, and we were not at all disappointed. I have added a review about that market separately. If you have difficulties walking, you need to contemplate taking a city bus up there.

It is a Perfect Place to look for jewellery, antiques, paintings etc. on the stalls there and then have a light lunch or something similar at one of the Nice cafes there. Surprised that so little has changed there since I lived in Brussels Close...More
