Guide to filming locations in Brussels

If you would like to order a calvados in the real Candide; see the church where Monique was married; follow Curtis to a rendezvous; retrace Bradley's footsteps as he tracked the Nazi spy following Natalie; visit Alain's vegetable stall; or shop in the arcade where Claude met his end, then this is the guide for you!

Just follow the links below or the red numbers on the clickable map opposite.

1. St Catherine's Church

2. Le Cracheur

3. Le Candide and the Grand Place

4. Galeries Royale St Hubert

5. Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula

6. Place du Petit Sablon

7. Rue de la Samaritaine/Rue des Pigeons

8. St Jean et Etienne aux Minimens

. Rue des Fleuristes

10. Avenue Louise - Gestapo HQ

With the exception of the former Gestapo HQ building (for which you should catch a tram near the Palais de Justice) all of the locations are in easy walking distance of each other and can be covered in a day, although personally I'd suggest two so you can really drink in the tremendous atmosphere of the city.

NEW - Also well worth a visit is the Musée National de la Resistance near the Gare du Midi. The museum holds a fascinating collection of original false ID papers,   weapons, printing presses, clothing, photos and communications equipment.

N.B. If you know of any other Brussels filming locations or places of relevance to the series  then please email me and I'll add them to this map.
