Brüsseler Platz – Always a place to be

You won’t meet any locals here who haven’t been hanging out at the Brüsseler Platz.

You can meet a lot of people here during the day taking a break between appointments or walking their dogs, but the energy of this place just begins to reveal itself in the late afternoon.

Lots of people come here only to sit on the ground or next to the bushes. Why, you might be wondering. Is it an extra special ground? Highly comfy? I guarantee you: No.

I think the reason is in the architecture of the court. It has plenty of corners to sit with your group of friends and still be somewhat separated, but you remain part of the bigger picture. People-watching is super easy and super fun here – also because this place connects all kinds of people.

You just bring your own drinks, meet your friends and have a good time in front of the backdrop of the lovely St. Michaels Church. You will get why people choose to sit on the ground here — and why it will make you happy, too.
