This street is located in the middle of the Red Light District. If you had more than enough of all the scantily clad ladies behind the windows in the Rue D’Aerschot, you will be happy to hear that in the Rue De Brabant it’s burqas galore! The shops here have great names like Top Mod’elle, Karim’s Palace of Kitsch or 1 Euro Shop.
If you travel to Brussels by car and don’t want to look like some stupid tourist, make sure you stick to the local habits and park your car on the middle of the street with your flashing lights on and go and visit some shops. Take your time. If there are people honking or if you see the police: just ignore them because in the end, no one can come between you and your kaftan shopping.
