You want both the city and peace and quiet. You love beautiful green spaces, but not if they are far from the centre. Seeing darling old couples is your thing. Well then, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is a perfect match for you.

A quiet municipality…

Located to the east of the city centre, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is a peaceful enclave, quite middle class and primarily residential. Its adorable districts – filled with parks and large family homes – make it one of the most pleasant municipalities to live in. Some corners are scattered with splendid Art Nouveau, Art Deco or modernist constructions (Saint-Henri, Linthout, Square Vergote, Broqueville, etc.) and others are more working class, such as the Constellations district. In short, you can change atmosphere just by changing street corners!

… but not excessively calm

Despite its primarily residential character, no need to go on an expedition to find shops of all kinds (big it up in the Georges Henri district), a vast shopping centre, lively bars and restaurants and excellent sporting infrastructure. Life is good in Woluwe, yeah!

An ideal location

Its immediate proximity to the European districts and the rest of the city makes it the perfect spot if you are looking for a compromise between residential life and urban life.

The municipality may be crossed using the metro line and quite a few bus lines add to its transport offerings (to give you an idea, you can get to the Grand-Place in 15 minutes). The Louvain-Liège motorway also offers rapid access to the ring road (the Brussels “periph”) while you can quickly leave Brussels via Avenue de Tervuren.

A multitude of green spaces

The municipality takes its name from the small river that crosses it, the Woluwe. Walking along it, you can have a nice rural stroll taking you past Lindekemaele mill, a romantic location full of charm, a perfect place to take the love of your life.

Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is every runner’s and dog sitter’s paradise since the municipality has a myriad of green spaces: Parc Malou, Parc Neerveld, Parc Georges Henri, Parc Van Muylder, Parc de Roodebeek… and is located at the border of the two largest parks in Brussels: the Cinquantenaire and Parc de Woluwe-Saint-Pierre. And yes, there are indeed two municipality names that start with “Woluwe”. Why, you ask? You can’t ever have enough Woluwes!

Woluwe-Saint-Lambert – the unmissable experiences:

  • Take a dip in the Poséidon swimming pool in summer and go back in winter to enjoy the covered skating rink. In between, let's work on those triple axels a bit.
  • Learn new skills at Wolubilis, a cultural space that resembles a small village and offers training courses (jewellery making, fashion design, sewing and dressmaking, theatre) and a programme rich in exhibitions, concerts and conferences.
  • Feed your body and mind at Cook & Book, an immense conceptual bookshop/restaurant of 1,500 m2 with a magnificent sun-bathed terrace.
  • Get some bargain shopping at the W shopping center and Caméléon, an outlet offering the largest brands.
  • Try to get your car onto the Montgomery roundabout (it’s a bit like our very own Place de l’Étoile). Good luck!
  • Brush shoulders with the fine gourmet middle class and food influencers at Rob Market, a luxury supermarket/caterer supply store from which it is impossible to escape with an empty shopping trolley.
