The "Galeries Royales St Hubert" (Royal St Hubert Galleries) in Brussels equal two hundred meters of listed monument. They were constructed by the architect Cluysenaer in 1847 and house a unique mix of cultural style and commercial spirit under a beautiful glass roof. They are without any doubt the most beautiful covered galleries of Europe. Ever since 1850, they have become the favourite promenade location and place to be for all sorts of artists and intellectuals. The galleries are divided into 3 parts, the "Galeries de la Reine" (the Queen's Gallery), the "Galerie du Roi" (the King's Gallery) and the "Galerie des Princes" (the Princes' Gallery).
You will encounter a tranquil atmosphere, perfect for discovering amazing shop windows. However, do not be mistaken, you will see very little commercial signs here, but mostly upmarket boutiques with a well-defined speciality. Are you looking for an original piece of jewellery? In these Galleries you will find a concentration of jewellers, each with their own particular trend: old, modern, ethnical, haute couture or fantasy... or rare shops such as a cutlery shop, a glove shop, a hat and umbrella shop. Nice ready-to-wear brands, renowned leather goods dealers, Belgian and foreign stylists and designers, big chocolate brands, quality restaurants and even a theatre and a cinema have found their place as well at the cultural Mecca of Brussels.
