The Zavel and the Marollen in Brussels

Brussels. The Zavel and the Marollen. So close by at yet so different! Perfect to discover with a city game, with or without GPS. These two quarters are a true goldmine for anyone who loves art and collects antique and curiosities. The inhabitants and the traders of the Marollen and the Zavel are real life artists, and you will see! The antique shops and modern art galleries of the Zavel are on their own a museum. Everyone (or at least almost everyone) discovers sooner or later the rare gem he/she was looking for. The Brussels Palace of Justice or the 'large ink pot' as Victor Hugo so brightly described the building is really nearby. A remarkable lift will bring you in 30 seconds to the Poelaert square with a panoramic view: the entrance is right in the middle of the busy Hoogstraat. In the popular Hoogstraat and Blaesstraat there are a lot of antique shops and interior design shops, one even more remarkable than the other one. Are you getting hungry or thirsty of all that browsing and wandering, then you can choose from quite a few nice pubs and restaurants. You can order the nicest dishes or just a cup of hot soup or a sandwich with cottage cheese. Who knows, maybe in the pub there is someone at the bar 'zwanzen'= blabbering: people from the Marollen are namely masters in telling absurd stories. All these local traditions have one highlight: the famous flee market which is held every morning at Vossenplein (Fox square). You should see this! You can combine this with a beer or a chocolate tasting session.
