Avenue Louise

A byword for luxury in Brussels, this street's smart shop windows (galleries, place Stephanie) attract a smart crowd. Opened in 1864 to link the centre to the bois de Cambre, it is named after Leopold III's eldest daughter. Fans of Victor Horta will note the Solvay house at n°224 (1894), designed by the architect in its entirety.
