When window shopping is on the itinerary, Avenue Louise is there to make you regret following your dreams instead of taking a soul-sucking job that gets you tons of money.

Miles of beautiful and expensive shops make up this wide avenue. On one end, near the Louise tram stop, is a ledge overlooking the entire city of Brussels (spot the Atomium!) and on the other end is Bois de la Cambre, a beautiful forest with a large pond. Walk along the road until you get tired of not being able to buy every designer backpack or expensive chocolate assortment that you see, and then take the #93 or #94 tram straight to Bois de la Cambre to reassure yourself that the simple pleasures of life are the most important.

Southeast from Place Louise to Bois de la Cambre; open daily 24hr
