The chaussée Ixelles is an overcrowded street with the standard shops you can find anywhere. the only difference here is you can break your neck on the sidewalk while shopping. you have to push your way through to mzany people, who are never in a hurry. if you do this street by car, be carefull not to run over someone...

The other reviewers have said most of it - it's rough and unattractive and not a tempting location to spend money, but it does have lots of second and third and fourth rate shops - and some even lower on the food-chain. Yes. No high heels for this street - the paving is terrible. And yes, as another review stated,... More

This is one of the most disgraceful streets in Brussels. The half torn-up pavements would go down well in provincial Russia. Shops and building are trashy. One of the reasons why the Ixelles governors should be sacked and, ideally, sent off to the remote island in the north Sea.

Unless you are looking for something cheap, don't go there. For quality shopping, take the seveal galleries on Avenue de la Toison d'Or. This avenue crosses this chaussee. Even better walk a bit further and... More

This is the a typical example of Belgium politics. For years (i've heart even 15) the 'commune' is trying to come an agreement what to do with the street. In the meantime nothing is done, resulting in massive potholes in the street and pavements.....

This street is rather narroe and it offers some high street shopping on both its sides. Car traffic is allowed in both directions and it is almost always a continuous queue of vehicles, which makes it for an uncomfortable shopping experience. Besides, the pavements are in poor conditions and also very crowded. Walking around often turns into an exercise in... More
