The locals say
Enjoy a family picnic in the park, or connect with nature with a woodland walk, all without having to leave the city.
It’s a foodie heaven too, with some of the city’s best restaurants. This oasis in the capital is renowned for its quality of life with peaceful, verdant spaces, beautiful homes and some excellent international schools.
This was originally a rural part of Belgium and up until the mid-20th century it was predominantly a farming community. Over recent decades it has formed part of modern Brussels with a mix of planned business and residential development, conveniently located between the city centre and the international airport.
Points of interest

One of the most compelling advantages to this neighbourhood is its proximity to the airport, making international travel, and business meetings much easier.
It is a popular location for international businesses and organisations, as it is close to both the airport and the NATO HQ.
Modern shopping centres including Evere Paduwa and Woluwe, and other modern retail parks are within easy reach in this neighbourhood, whilst local transport can quickly take you to the fashionable shopping streets of central Brussels.
