What travellers are saying

  • This place is a must-go if you like to enjoy a good cup o tea, interesting conversations with the owners (who speak French, English, Polish and many other languages :)) and if you are into contemporary art. Every Saturday Happy Day opens its doors for anyone (for free!) to meet a new artist: painter, photographer, sculptor... You can enjoy an exhibition, while sipping delicious tea. Every artist is different, so you can get to know what's popular these days among amateur, as well as professional, artists in the heart of Europe. This place is hidden in the small cozy street which makes it even more authentic and special :)

    This is one of Saint-Gilles little hidden gem. This art gallery is situated behind a beautiful Art Nouveau building in an Art deco white cube and has a great selection of art work with a new exhibition every month and a half or so. They are presenting all sorts of different art works from painting to sculpture and installation. I love this place and definitely recommend a visit to all the art lovers out there.

    Honestly we passed through this gallery by pure chance, we were not aware it even existed; I have visited many galleries and this is in the top 10 for sure. The decor, the architecture is very nice, you can feel the wealth of it. If you are a chocolate lover, than you have to pass through this gallery, because there is a good variety of shop offering different types of Belgian chocolate and pralines.

    Great host. Very clean. Very damp downstairs, but there is a dehumidifier under the stairs. Lots of french fry memorabilia.

    The location is great, just a block from the Union tram stop. Only about 10-15 minutes to get to Gare Midi. The neighbourhood is great; residential, safe, and quiet. There are a couple of pizza places and a brasserie or two nearby. Groceries are a block away.

    Make sure you show any cab driver the complete address so they can get you there. We had mixed taxi experiences.

    Beds are comfortable, there's a fridge and microwave, toaster, coffee maker, hair dryer, dishwasher, clothes washing machine, one and a half bathrooms, nice patio and yard in the back, and the host was great at explaining the logistics of the place. He even had a transit card that he gave us with four or more rides left on it. (Normally €5 just for the card, and €14 for ten rides).

    Oh, there's a bathtub AND shower. Two sinks in the downstairs bathroom too.

    Oh! The host also had a big bottle of Belgian beer waiting for us in the fridge too! Score!

    Sunday morning market right outside the Gate du Midi station.
    It was extremely busy as well as many stalls selling just about anything you want.
    Was great just to mooch around it seeing what's available to buy.
    Shame there's no markets left in the UK

    I am the one who usually go to fea market when I visit places in different countries. Brussels, Belgium is the one city that I had been visit. Marche Aux Puces de Bruxelles is a fea market that I visit on July 2019. I spend there 1.30 hrs. It is my enjoyment time. I found some interest things but when I asked for prices, the seller gave me the higher price that I approximate in my mind. So I just enjoyed my window shopping and move to another fea market that I met it by my accidental in Brugges.

    Parking is not free for the first two hours, I paid 4e for that. Toilet is not free, and since this is a shopping mall it should definitely be without additional cost. I expected much more since the mark here on maps is so high.BUT it’s
    Large shopping mall with great variety of shops. Staff at Levi’s were very friendly. Wide range of food options available. Clean and safe space for all to enjoy. Family friendly, good for groups and solo trips.

    Passage du Nord is a rather grand-looking covered arcade running between the Lower City’s main shopping drag, Rue Neuve, and Boulevard Adolphe Max. There is a sad, but nowadays inevitable discrepancy between the elegant architecture designed by Henri Rieck in the early 1880s and the quality of the shops and food places lining the arcade. A few traditional stores, like Davidoff cigars and Coutellerie du Roi, soldier on but even our favourite oyster bar seems to have disappeared. Eventually the whole centre of Brussels well be swamped with food outlets selling fried chicken, pizza, pasta, kebab, chocolate and ghastly, so-called Belgian waffles.

    I went in here to have a simple lunch with my mother. There is a limited choice of food but the choice available is simple and cheap.
    I had a sandwich with chicken and curry which was tasty, my mother had the sandwich with ham.
    It's a nice place a little separated from the store, a lot like marks and spencers in London.

    We visited Woluwe Shopping Center in July (school holidays in Belgium), which may explain why it was so quiet, despite the fact that summer sales were in full swing. Covid-19 may also have played a role as many people tend to avoid crowded places these days. When it was created in 1968 the shopping mall was the first of its kind in Belgium. Since then, it has been enlarged and refurbished several times and, today, it doesn’t look different from any other mall and you’ll find all the usual suspects. But we did find an unfiltered olive oil we had been looking for everywhere at an Italian Specialty Shop (‘Spécialités italiennes’). There are several pleasant places to have a bite or a drink; the loos were clean. Maybe due to the glass roof of the central hall - a nice feature in itself – it was a bit too hot inside on a warm summer day.

    Tram 8 (stop Woluwe Shopping) left us opposite the mall. Metro station Roodebeek on line 1 is accessible from inside the mall.

    Reading the reviews, we were amazed Flemish (Belgian) reviewers have been allowed to rant against and even insult French speaking shop assistants and to compare this mall to others, so much better, in Flanders (and even in Germany!). Isn’t that supposed to be against TA rules?

    Since we visited the ‘Patinoire Royale’ for the first time we have been back several times because we just love the place. The Patinoire is a covered roller skating rink dating from 1877. Since then it has been put to different uses and today houses a contemporary art gallery. The building has been beautifully restored. Behind the white neoclassical façade lies a wowing exhibition space. Last time we visited auction house PIASA was presenting work of Belgian sculptor Olivier Strebelle (1927-2017) and design of the second half of the 20th century. A combination that worked very well.

    Constructed in 1958 and renovated in 2006 the Ravenstein Gallery is an example of the 'international style' in architecture. Although esthetically a pleasing gallery and a convenient free pedestrian passage from Brussel Central Station to Bozar, these days the amount of occupied shops is small compared to the size of the gallery. These days the gallery is more convenient as a pedestrian passage than as a shopping venue.
