Sheltered from the weather, you have no reason not to spend a little time and money at the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Indeed, this meeting place, covered by a magnificent glass roof, allows you to spoil yourself in one of the prestigious shops of the square while seeing the daylight. The Royal Galleries are, therefore, suitably named because they are subdivided into three: Galerie de la Reine (Queen), Galerie du Roi (King) and the Galerie des Princes (Princes). There are cafes, restaurants, chocolate shops, jewelry stores, and even performance halls and a cinema.
If you find it difficult to resist the expense, try to go there after closing time. The stores are not open 24 hours but the site is. After dusk, it is an opportunity to see this place under pretty lights. Did you know that there are a few apartments available above the shops?
This illustrious commercial place was officially opened in 1847 and is worth a visit to admire the richness of the shop windows.
