Overview

"FREE tastings in the most exclusive chocolate boutiques like Neuhaus, Godiva, Wittamer, Marcolini..." For the love of tasting them, for the desire of touching them, for the art of making them--it was in Belgium that modern chocolates were born.

Whatever the Swiss might contend, Belgian chocolates are indubitably the finest in the world, and they’re so lethally addictive that they ought to be sold with a government health warning.

This walking tour of Brussels begins with a master class taught by a chocolatier, who schools you in the art of making orangettes, pralines, and decorative Easter eggs.

Explore the marvelously preserved buildings in the Grand’Place, and peek in the windows of the antique shops in Sablon.

Walk along a boulevard lined with decadent chocolate shops, and listen to the quavering melodies of street musicians in Ilot Sacre.

Itinerary

Please make your way to Grand'Place in front of the Godiva shop to begin this Brussels Walking Tour and Chocolate Workshop. You will be accompanied by a bi-lingual guide (English and French).

Enroll in an entertaining workshop headed by a master chocolatier, where you’ll learn the preparation secrets behind orangettes, pralines, and Easter eggs.

Made with real cream or alcoholic filling, these chocolates don’t keep well, but you weren’t planning on keeping them for long anyway, were you?

Take a walk around the Grand’Place, the heart of the old city—which is surrounded by guild houses and the magnificent Town Hall.

See the mischievous bronze boy of Manneken-Pis, one of Europe’s most famous fountain sculptures, and Brussels’ oldest citizen.

The square of the Sablon is filled with antique shops and the Royal Galleries , which is the seat of the city’s oldest chocolate shop, Neuhaus.

Boulevard Anspach is home to a number of fashion boutiques and chocolate shops, which proudly parade their confections in enticing window displays.

Explore the jumble of cobbled streets and narrow passages of Ilot Sacre , where restaurants with outdoor terraces overlook talented street musicians that give the area a lively atmosphere.

In addition to this extensive walk past the city’s most famous luxury chocolate shops and historical landmarks, you will also be told where to find the best bargains in Brussels.

The tour will conclude where it began.
