Scavenger hunt

Walking together through markets past and present

Markets have always existed, and this is as true of Brussels as anywhere else. As trading and meeting hubs for a whole neighbourhood, they have evolved, diversified and modernised, moved and, in some cases, changed their use. They have shaped the city since the Middle Ages and continue to be a focus of community life to this day. Take a walk through Brussels exploring marketplaces past and present, from the market in front of Saint-Nicolas/Sint-Niklaas Church to Grand-Place/Grote Markt and from Halles Saint-Géry/Sint-Gorikshallen to Place du Grand Sablon/Grote Zavel. Featuring a host of little-known revelations and anecdotes, this scavenger hunt will make you view these locations in a whole new light!

In cooperation with Brussels Chatterguides.
