Lively and classy

Quartier Latin is a lively neighbourhood:theatres, the Stadsschouwburg, the Bourlaschouwburg, numerous cafés and restaurants… But it also offers quiet havens:the Graanmarkt and the Botanical Garden are ideal places to have a little rest.Around these havens you’ll find exclusive shopping streets filled with boutiques.Everything exudes class here.
 

Top brands

Those who start at Hopland dive into the Quartier Latin via the chic Schuttershofstraat.Major brands follow each other in quick succession:Hermès, Burberry, Natan, Jimmy Choo, Vuitton, Chanel, Delvaux – in short, all the national and international fashion stars.This is a place to see and been seen.
 

Antique and interior

Once you’ve passed the Bourlaschouwburg the boutiques give way to antique shops in the Leopoldstraat.Even further, heading towards Het Zuid, interior decoration shops are emphasised on the Mechelsesteenweg.Along the way trendy coffee shops appear to help pep you up for another round of shopping.
 

Attractive markets

Those who retrace their steps and walk from the Bourlaschouwburg to the Theaterplein – home of the Stadsschouwburg – enter a somewhat more working-class neighbourhood.The large, open square is surrounded by cafés. Every weekend it’s the backdrop of two lively markets:the Exotic market on Saturdays and the famous Vogelenmarkt on Sundays.
