What travelers are saying
- In my opinion, this is the most beautiful structure in Brussels. Lots of other visitors agree so this indoor shopping arcade is usually very crowded. We bought chocolates here. Lots of upscale shops and some places for coffee. The design is classic mid-nineteenth century.Written November 28, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Brilliant exhibitions being shown, a great collection of modern and historic art.
We attended one modern are exhibition, and photographic exhibition on the Harlem area scene in the late 80s, and a collection of historic paintings owned by the Medici family of Florence.

- 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.Written July 23, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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 UKWritten March 10, 2018
- 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?Written August 9, 2021
- A blast from the past amidst the modern and arguably rather ugly commercial expressions of the Rue Neuve. Very elegant small scale shops in a pleasant indoor setting. Worth a visit for sure to get some relief from the hustle and bustle.Written July 1, 2023
- 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.Written May 28, 2019
- The best place in Brussels if you’re looking for the best Chocolat, The cacao is pure and delicious, they have all kind of chocolats, the best dark chocolat that I ever tried, and the most important, the owner and the attendants are very nice and attentive, thank you for everything Adem!
We highly recommend Planet chocolat, you will have the best experience and also the best chocolat.Written October 1, 2023
- A little bit of everything and the shop keepers are very welcoming and helpful. I loved walking around whilst it was quiet, plenty of parking. Great places to eat, hard to choose where to though. Been 3 times now and discover new shops each timeWritten June 22, 2019
- Unfortunately we couldn't pack some of the items we really liked. Friends in Brussels took us here on our last day - a Saturday - as we whizzed around the city with them after lunch. Amazing array of goods!Written July 1, 2016
- I heard the parking and other services are not free and that's slightly inconvenient for car owners. I, however, cam by tram and faced no difficulties into coming or leaving. It's huge with a whole bunch of amazing shops. Seriously, you can literally find anything you need there! There's so much variety of shops and food places and it's so clean.Written October 2, 2022
- Excellent products, delicious cheese, amazing service. I'll definitely go back during my stay in Brussels.Written December 26, 2021
- 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 :)Written February 29, 2020
- Simply the best chocolates of Brussels! Absolutely deserves all the rave reviews. Highly recommend this spot! Super super superWritten November 1, 2023
- We quite like Galerie Ravenstein, especially the atrium with its high concrete and glass cupola and the majestic staircase leading to Horta’s Palais des Beaux-Arts in the upper town. Sadly enough, the modernist Galerie Ravenstein, built as a covered shopping mall by architects Alexis and Philippe Dumont in the mid-1950s, seems to have lost its original purpose and lustre these days. Most of the shops, restaurants, and cafés are gone; there are only a few businesses left. So, if it’s a shopping experience you are after, you will have to look elsewhere. But the gallery is still a pleasant shortcut between the Bruxelles Midi railway station and the upper town. The porches on both sides are worth a look.Written September 9, 2023
