The “Royal Gallerie St. Hubert” in Brussels exists since 1850.

This gallery must be one the most impressive in the world. I know there is a similar gallery in Milan but I have not visited it yet. The gallery is very long and crosses the famous dinning street Rue des Bouchers or the Beenhouwersstraat. On the first and second floor of the gallery there are apartments and they are decorated with marble statues. Above each store selling chocolate, jewels, clothing or other quality products, there is an arch displaying the number of the store. The gallery itself is covered by a glass roof. It is always impressive to walk here or have a drink on a terrace.

Deze winkelgalerij moet wel één van de meest indrukwekkende in de wereld zijn. Ik weet dat er nog een gelijkaardige bestaat in Milaan, maar heb deze nog niet bezocht. De Galerij is zeer lang en doorkruist het populaire toeristen restaurant gebied “Rue Des Bouchers” of de Beenhouwersstraat. Op het eerste en tweede verdiep bevinden zich appartementen die versiert zijn met marmeren beeldhouwwerken. Boven iedere winkel die chocolade, juwelen, kledij of andere kwaliteitsproducten verkoopt vind je een praalboog die het nummer van de winkel aanduidt. De galerij zelf is overdekt door een glazen dak. Het is altijd leuk hier te wandelen of iets te drinken op een terras..
