|The enstrance area by Gare Centrale|
Galerie Ravenstein connects the Central Station with the area above, by the Parc Royal and the Royal Palace in Brussels. You ascend the hill through the four-story galerie and office building. When it opened, it accommodated over 80 shops.
Galerie Ravenstein was designed by Alexis and Philippe Dumont and built between 1954 and 1958. For those of you with a keen interest in architecture, there is much to take in while walking through the arcade. The innovative skylight and stellar artwork incorporated into the design of the arcade are striking features to be admired.
Galerie Ravenstein was listed in 2009.
