The Grand Place, Brussels

6 Feb

Why was Piggletino so happy with his scout’s hotel choice?
Easy – we first look at what’s nearby to the Novotel Off Grand Place hotel. By it’s name, the hotel is a mere 5 minutes walk to the central square of Brussels (It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site!). This square is often bustling with people visiting the city town hall, guildhalls and the Breadhouse.

Just a short walk from the Grand Place and the hotel, you’ll also find the Galeries Royales St Hubert.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This shopping arcade imitates a courtyard with its narrow lane and two upper floors, with an arched-glass roof and Italian-style architecture.

An intersection occurs at Rue des Bouchers, lined with cafes and restaurants. However, a quick word of warning – pick your dinner spots with care; it’s a tourist area that guarantees much touting and often-times overpriced meals! 

Now, what else lies in the vicinity of the Grand Place?

      Do visit Brussels! 🙂 There’s quite a bit of touristy spots, though, so beware of overpriced stuff!
