Galeries Royales Saint Hubert
Mall lovers everywhere should make a pilgrimage to the Galeries
Royales Saint Hubert, the very first shopping arcade in Europe.
Opened in 1847, the arcade became a draw card for the cream of 19th
century society and today continues to inspire shoppers and
browsers alike. The building itself is an architectural marvel:
arcaded shop fronts across two floors are separated by pilasters,
conceived in a Cinquecento style. The roof above is made of arched
glass panes connected by a delicate cast-iron framework - very
photogenic! In between the various shops you'll find cafes,
restaurants, a theatre and even a cinema.
