Welcome to this shopping arcade, which welcomes more and more Belgian and international visitors every year! And the reputation enjoyed by the Galeries, including beyond our borders, continues to flourish every year, thanks to you! By sharing your photos, your experiences and your top tips, the Galeries have a life that goes beyond the one dreamt up by Jean-Pierre Cluysenaar, the site’s brilliant architect!
It has definitely held on to its authenticity and its multifunctionality, by being home to shops, theatres, a hotel, a cinema, apartments (you can explore one in each Gazette!) offices and a co-working space… whilst also moving with the times! A truly avant-garde concept in 1847, the Galeries are still at the cutting edge of modernity today… Every weekend, you can marvel at the light show, but we also strongly recommend that you explore our website, which has just been given a complete makeover so it’s easier for you to browse and find your way around.
But the Galeries’ ambition doesn’t stop there. Since being twinned with the Passage Pommeraye (Nantes) in 2016, the experience continues with the Galerie Vivienne (Paris 2e). The desire to create partnerships with prestigious heritage sites is too strong! The creation of both a virtual and a real network is an extension of the work done by Jean-Pierre Cluysenaar.
