Where to live in Brussels?

Have you just arrived in Brussels?

You may be overwhelmed by the idea of finding a place to rent & many aspects can be intimidating.  What location, contracts, surveys, etc.

First step, where do I want to live?  Brussels is a relatively small city but full of diversity.  We’ve put together a small list of areas popular with expats.

Brussels city center


Many popular areas such as Place Saint-Gery, Place Sainte-Catherine, Sablon.  Ideal if you want to be in the heat of the action with great public transport.

Etterbeek


Central, dynamic and residencial.  Adjacent to the European Institutions.  Merode is a popular area next to the Jubilee Park.

Ixelles


Central and eclectic, home to the very popular Chatelain area but also the more central area around Place Stephanie (Metro Louise).

Saint-Gilles


Ideal location close to the Thalys and Eurostar, a vibrant area with some beautiful architecture.

Woluwé Saint-Pierre


Very residential and green yet close to the centre, a family oriented area with good public transport.

Auderghem & Boitsfort


Two areas with easy commuting out of the city.  Great for nature and sport lovers who want to access the Forêt de Soignes for a walk, a bike ride or a jogging.
