Dear all Brussels lovers,

Let's discover the most popular area of Brussels: the Marolles.

Every Brussels lover knows the famous old district of Marolles, just situated between the Palace of Justice and Brussels south train station.
The lively quarter consists of many antique shops during the day and bars in the evenings and nights.

In the centre of this area, you never miss the flea market of Place du Jeu de Balles, always arousing your curiosity. About 1 year ago, we discovered just under that place an old shelter from the Second World War. It was also the ideal place for black market.

This area has become the true quarter of the typical Brussels dialect "brusseleer" and since Middle-Ages has played a major role in the daily life of the "Bruxellois".

From century to century, this area has kept its authenticity and the true spirit of Brussels.

I suggest you to discover this area without delay!
