Welcome to Vortal City Network

Whether you are looking for gastronomic delicacies or antique objects : shopping in Brussels is always pleasant and fun; by going round the shops in the centre it is possible to discover the soul of the city and its inhabitants. Even if you have no intention of buying anything, the Galleries Saint Hubert (three in all), the covered commercial streets in the city centre rich in shops and café, certainly deserve a visit. For those who want to take home the Brussels flavour, the gastronomic souvenir par excellence is chocolate. It has a superior quality and it is prepared by authentic confectionery artists. Belgian chocolate is famous all over the world and it can be wrapped up in bars or in savoury pralines with various fillings. Those who are fond of ancient furniture, gifts and fancy goods have at their disposal a whole quarter, Sablon, famous for its numerous antique shops. In its peaceful streets and on its two main squares there are antique shops, art galleries but also ethnic shops and tea-rooms. The local markets of Brussels and its surroundings are known and appreciated everywhere. They are very numerous, both in the city and in the other communes of the region, and they can satisfy everybody's wishes. They are both big and coloured or small and suggestive; among the numerous local markets it is worth going to the antique market of Sablon – during the week-ends – and to the most famous local flea market that since over a century it takes place in Place du Jeu de Balle, situated in the popular Marolle quarter.
