A few words about Brussels
Brussels is rich in history and in heritage.The Koekelberg basilica, the Atomium and the world-famous town hall on the Grand-Place are only a few of the features of this capital city’s skyline. Its many international institutions, companies and prestigious neighbourhoods give Brussels the cachet it deserves.
The city has something for everyone: from a flea market to a traditional parade.
Another tradition is the inhabitants’ nickname of “chicken guzzlers” (kiekenfretters), which they were given when they brought a large number of chickens into the city during a siege.
Next to a world-class city
Etterbeek lies a stone’s throw from the city centre and is perfect for those who want a quiet life within reach of a capital city. With its well-filled activity calendar, Etterbeek takes good care of its inhabitants.
Also, many activities are organised for the over-55s, such as visits to museums, concerts and places of interest.
Etterbeek also organises an annual Mediaeval Market which attracts many visitors to the area. The nearby Parc du Cinquantenaire forms an attractive setting for the festivities, which are based on mediaeval folklore and traditions.
Theatres, cultural centres and art galleries are another cultural attraction. The “De Maalbeek” cultural centre is an attractive venue for anyone interested in innovation and creativity. As for the public libraries, they are a bookworm’s paradise.
