The Galerie Borthier, Galerie Bortier or Bortiergalerij in Brussels is a shopping arcade designed by Jean-Pierre Cluysenaer. It was constructed in 1847 and opened in the following year. It is situated in the centre of the City of Brussels between the Mont des Arts / Kunstberg and the Grand Place / Grote Markt not far from the more monumental Royal Galleries of Saint-Hubert.
Originally the mall was a part of the Marché de la Madeleine / Magdalenamarkt complex, a covered market also built by Cluysenaer. The façade at the rue de la Madeleine / Magdalenasteenweg in a Flemish baroque style antedates the construction of the mall behind it. This front was recuperated from an old town house built on that site in the 18th-century.
