Shopping in Brussels

Belgium is renowned for its chocolate, so don't leave town without a box or two. Many chocolatiers have set up shop around the Grand'Place. Designer Belgian fashion abounds on Avenue Louise – try the Chine store for silk garments. For a one-off, créateur outfit, head to the trendy Antoine Dansaert area. The Sablon is perfect for high-end antique hunting at the weekend, while bric-a-brac is found at the Place du Jeu de Balle Flea Market everyday from 6am.
