Look around. Stately buildings with a Hausmannian character dot the neighborhood. Many Parisians have fallen in love with this chic neighborhood. You are on the Place Brugmann, a neighborhood located at the intersection of Uccle, Ixelles, Forest and Saint-Gilles. Welcome to the Saint-Germain-des-Prés of Brussels.
Admire the Hausmannian architecture of the buildings that surround you. The Place Brugmann, the Place Guy d’Arrezzo and their adjacent streets are magnificently decorated by their facades and their sumptuous private mansions. Two emblematic avenues ensure the beauty of this district: Avenue Molière and Avenue Lepoutre. Note also the large trees that line the streets and give even more class to this district of the capital. Every Friday afternoon, come and do your shopping at the mini-market on the Place Brugmann.
We invite you to Tenbosch Park. Start at Place Guy d’Arrezzo, walk up Avenue Molière and then take Chaussée Vleurgat. You will then come across a charming green jewel, the Tenbosch Park. Linger over the two hectares and contemplate the hundred or so remarkable trees listed.
Further west in the neighborhood, you will find the Abbé Froidure park, a small public garden that straddles the municipalities of Ixelles and Forest. It’s a great place to get some fresh air in the middle of the city.
When it comes to culinary pleasures, you won’t be outdone. This area of Ixelles has a tempting offer of quality restaurants and cafés. Below the Place Brugmann, take a gastronomic break at « La Canne en Ville » or at the Niels brothers’ restaurant « Le Savoy ». Take your kids to « L’US du Balmoral » for a burger in a trendy and flashy place. We also recommend the trendy, healthy and creative cuisine of « L’Intemporelle ».
Planning an aperitif with friends? We take you to Franz or Au Winery. You can enjoy tapas and a good wine.
How about finding a branded garment from the other side of the world? Then you’ll find yourself at Cachemire Coton et Soie. For unusual and high-end decoration, go to the arty bric-a-brac of Graphie Sud or to Lucia Esteves, on the corner of Darwin and Franz Merjay.
