"Sablon" Place du Petit Sablon Tip by Sjalen
Place du Petit Sablon, Brussels: 26 reviews and 53 photos
The Petit and Grand Sablon ("sand pile") is one of my favourite city centre parts. You get to see the Notre Dame church (see tip) and are close to the Marolles district with its wonderful shops here and the square itself is just such a particular place to stroll around with its antique shops, chocolatiers and nice town houses with the odd restaurant or bar, The Grand Sablon is lined with antique market stalls for Christmas and other occasions, whilst the Petit Sablon has a little park with statues of significant people such as the Belgian cartographer Mercator (see my Duisburg page for more on him).
Address: Grand Sablon / Grote Zavel
Directions: Almost between the Royal palace and the Justice palace - on a hill above Grand Place.
