Listen carefully and don’t be surprised if you hear a seventy. In the Dieweg, French families have made their mark. Here, green spaces dominate, shops abound and there is a holiday feeling. You are in the Dieweg, a residential area in the heart of Uccle, one of the most popular.
To begin this walk, we head for the old Dieweg path. The main reason for taking you this way is to show you a beautiful view of the Forêt de Soignes.
But it is also to introduce you to an unusual but enchanting place: the Dieweg cemetery. Or rather, the former Dieweg cemetery, because it was disused at the end of the 1950s. Old graves on which nature has reclaimed its rights, rust-coloured ironwork… the Dieweg cemetery has become a haven for many species of birds, refuges and insects.
Head southwest to the Kinsendael-Kriekenput nature reserve. Here, just a few minutes from the centre of Brussels, you will find yourself in the middle of nature in a wild park of more than 10 hectares. Here, city dwellers come to recharge their batteries alone or with their families. This is also the case at the Kauwberg, a 53-hectare park with paths and waterways and remarkable flora and fauna.
Head east, past the Sauvagère park, the Avijl plateau and into the Saint Job district. Can you feel the change in atmosphere? The excitement?
We invite you to the heart of the district: the Place Saint-Job. It is on this large rectangular square around which the district is built that the Saint-Job market is held. Every Monday morning, the shopkeepers set up their stalls to the delight of the regulars. A greeting, a handshake… you will notice that everyone seems to know each other. The ‘village’ spirit of this Brussels district is at work.
It is also on this square, or rather under this square, that the remains of several castles have been discovered, including the first Carloo castle dating from the 16th century.
Are you attracted by the greenery of the Dieweg or the village spirit of Saint-Job? This neighbourhood near Uccle is full of luxury houses and flats.
