Neighbourhoods walk: Ixelles Ponds, Flagey and Malibran

Neighbourhoods walk: Ixelles Ponds, Flagey and Malibran

Speaking of contrasts! This walk takes you from a green, residential neighbourhood with lots of striking 20th century architecture to the more densely populated streets that underwent a recent migration. At the heart of this contrast lies the bustling Flagey Square with its famous ‘Steamship’ built in art deco style. This iconic building serves as a link between the two neighbourhoods and has become a real attraction for cultural institutions, cafés and restaurants, and shops. And to think that where the square is now located, there used to be a fishpond of the Abbey of Terkameren that was fed by the Maelbeek, which has now disappeared from the cityscape.

    • Duration of walk: 2hrs. 
    • Starting point: tram 93 or 94, stops Vleurgat or Abbaye/Abdij.
