It would be impossible to stroll the pavements of Brussels without being tempted by the irresistible magnetism of the very beautiful window displays.

Following a little cobble road from the Grand Place the Mannekin Pis  can be found. This little iconic statue has  earned a reputation for being very small - many of the locals warning of this at the very mention of the statue. He is in fact very small and more or less sits on the corner of a tiny street. Even more pronounced than the statue is the many, many replicas of him in everything from plaster to yes, you guessed -chocolate. Numerous coloured replicas made for this interesting display in a near by chocolate shop.

Brussels has its fair share of Macaron stores ranging from incredibly bright colours to the more subdue. Pierre Marcolini perhaps offering the most beautiful and the most sublime texture. Of course all need to be tasted!

As well as every chocolate flavour known to man, many of the chocolate boutiques offer signature ranges of nougat - many of them very good.
