Neighbourhoods walk: Saint-Josse and the squares

Neighbourhoods walk: Saint-Josse and the squares

In Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, 'superdiversity' is not a blank concept. The smallest and most densely populated commune in Brussels is home to about a 153 nationalities that speak over sixty languages: it is a pocket sized global village.

This walk also takes us to the squares, just a little further on. A place where the rich built their country houses near the ponds that were fed by the Maelbeek. Even though the area is still exuberant and impressive, its population has changed: a lot of buildings around the parks now house lobbyists who want to live near the European quarter.

    • Duration of walk: 2hrs. 
    • Starting point: Madou (metro line 2-6) (exit in front of the Town Hall)
