Bortier Gallery


The Bortier Gallery (French: Galerie Bortier, Dutch: Bortiergalerij) is a glazed shopping arcade in Brussels, Belgium. It was designed by Jean-Pierre Cluysenaer in 1847, in a neo-Renaissance style, and opened in the following year. As well as being one of the first European shopping arcades, it is a fine example of the joint use of cast iron and glass.

The gallery is situated in the centre of the City of Brussels, between the Mont des Arts/Kunstberg and the Grand-Place/Grote Markt (Brussels' main square), and not far from the more monumental Royal Saint-Hubert Galleries. It is owned by the City of Brussels and is managed by its Land Administration services. This site is served by Brussels Central Station on lines 1 and 5 of the Brussels Metro.
