Best area to have a coffee. Do not miss the Marcolini chocolates and the Louboutin designer shoe store! Sablon can be reached on foot, 5-10 minutes from Louise area.

Lovely square with many chocolate shops and international stores, with a beautiful church worth a visit. On weekends there is a antiques market where lovers of old glass and silverware can indulge!

The Sablon area is a wonderful “must” place for the visitors of Brussels. Carrying a long diverse history, this cosy place reflects interesting life of the city. The place to eat, drink and buy antiquities.
