A stroll in Flagey - Étangs d'Ixelles

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.

Place Eugène Flagey: the capital’s trendiest spot

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.
