Around the place you have many snacks, restaurants, theatres and parks and of course many bars (if you’re curious about those, you can read my Infamous Guide to Flagey Bars).
But the place itself is worth the visit: you can have a seat on the huge public benches, waiting for your friends (or pretending to) and watch the life around you: kids playing football, roller-skating, or at the fountain, adults drinking beers, playing music, chatting; artists giving a free show to the lucky ones present. Sometimes I only come there because I want to catch a bus or a tram, or to get some fries (see article Frit Flagey), but still it’s never without something to see or someone to talk to on the way!
The place is huge (the biggest one in Brussels) and there’s always something going on on it, be it a market, an official or commercial event or people dancing in the street!
What will be the print you leave on it?
