Planning a shopping trip in Brussels
Travellers on shopping breaks in Brussels have many options to choose from. Head to rue Neuve, the main pedestrianised shopping street, and browse Brussels's collection of high street shops. If it's raining, visit City 2, one of the primary shopping malls in town. Alternatively, for a taste of local Belgian fare, visit one of Brussels's many markets, which are known to sell everything from cheese to antique books.
Luxury shopping in Brussels also offers many high-end delights: Avenue Louise and Boulevard de Waterloo are lined with designer boutiques. And for souvenirs, shopping near the Grand Place is a must. Here, shoppers will find a range of gifts, including award-winning Belgian beers, delicious chocolate and novelty statues of Brussels's most famous son - the Manneken Pis (the Peeing Boy).
