A district of Ixelles located between Matonge/Saint-Boniface and the European district, Flagey – Étangs d’Ixelles is a cosmopolitan crossroads and a cultural hub of the capital. Here, architecture, green spaces and festive life combine to seduce you.
Welcome to Flagey – Étangs d’Ixelles, south of Ixelles and at the gateway to the European quarter. Here, a few steps are enough to go from the bustle of the city to the calm of its ponds.
Here we are on the famous Place Eugène Flagey, which is presented as the largest square in the Brussels region. Here, the student community likes to meet and enjoy the many typical Brussels cafés, trendy bars and restaurants. Next to the Sainte-Croix church stands an impressive Art Deco building, the Maison de la Radio (INR) or Flagey ASBL built in 1956. Come and appreciate the acoustic quality of its performance rooms or enjoy the Art & Essai cinema. This Art Deco liner also houses offices and the École nationale supérieure des Arts visuels de la Cambre. On sunny days, come and have an aperitif on the terrace of the unmissable Café Belga on the ground floor or stroll the market alleys on Saturdays and Sundays between 8am and 2.30pm.
Just a stone’s throw from the Place Flagey, we take you to the Flagey ponds. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city centre for this peaceful, trendy and romantic haven. Admire its prestigious architectural setting with its private mansions and highly prized houses in various styles: neo-classical, Flemish neo-renaissance, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Five hectares of greenery, separated by the Square du Souvenir, welcome you for a chic walk or a little physical exercise. There’s nothing like a breath of fresh air in the middle of the city.
Let’s head completely south of the Flagey ponds. There, a religious building with remarkable architecture stands before you, anchored to the ponds, which is none other than the Abbey of La Cambre. Stroll through its large gardens, take the time to relax or visit this historical jewel, you won’t regret it.
Are you won over? The Flagey – Étangs d’Ixelles district is full of luxury houses and flats that will catch your eye.
