City Center Fashion and Gourmet Walking Tour (Self Guided), Brussels

Among the beautiful old streets of Brussels with their historic buildings is an explosion of creativity. You will see it in the designer boutiques and on the dining tables of gourmet restaurants.

Saint Gery is a vibrant, diverse area with studios and shops that are a riot of beautiful colors, forms and materials. It is said that Saint Gery has the highest number of designers per square meter. Spend some time in the effortlessly stylish Dansaert area, especially if you are a fashionista. On the hyper trendy rue Antoine Dansaert, you will find designers, jewelers and milliners who create items in limited quantities, affording you the chance to wear something that you will probably never see anywhere else. If you want to stand out from the rest of the fashionable crowd, this is the place to come. Then embark on a shopping expedition on rue Neuve. This is one of the busiest shopping streets in the city and it hosts many of Europe's most popular brands.

With your fashion desires sated, it's time to take care of your appetite, and the center of Brussels spoils visitors and residents alike with its delicious offerings. Dive into the gourmet restaurants in and around Place Saint Catherine, the former site of the fish market. Go to rue des Bouchers, the "Butchers Street" for its tantalizing array of fine restaurants.
