About a half an hour train ride from Antwerp, which will bring you right into the center of the city. From there, head down via the Galeries St. Hubert to the Beurs for second hand vinyl on the main boulevards. Afterwards, stop for a drink at Fontainas or the Zebra.

Galeries St. Hubert (1846), Brussels

Galeries St. Hubert (1846), Brussels

In 1846 King Leopold I laid the first stone for the construction of the royal galleries Saint-Hubert in Brussels, designed by architect J. P. Cluysenaer as an enclosed shopping environment with a glass and metal roof. Although other enclosed galleries had been built in Europe, St. Hubert would be the oldest covered gallery to survive to the present day. --http://history.sandiego.edu/gen/soc/shoppingcenter2.html [Feb 2005]
