Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is above all residential, properous and rich in green spaces (20% of its territory). It gets its name from the flowing water (la Woluwe) which crosses from south to north where it meets up with its neighbour, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert. L’avenue de Tervueren is a majestic road which, from the less prestigious Rond-Point Montgomery to the west, crosses all the municipality to meet up with Tervueren, its park and its museum (being transformed).The municipality is quiet and very near the European institutions.
To walk along des Etangs Mellaerts is a good reason to take a walk, depending on the weather. If the weather is good, try taking a stroll in a boat or with a pédalo. If it isn’t so nice, have a drink at the nearby bar…
At the extreme west (Montgomery) and the extreme east (Stockel), two metro stations have just concluded a project for public transport made up of trams and buses which will enable them to be within easy reach of the centre of town. The outside Ring is not far.
Many theatres, two museums (Bibliotheca Witockiana, public transport), Woluwe-Saint-Pierre also has historic monuments : le manoir d’Anjou, le palais Stoclet..
Stockel has a very varied commercial centre. Rob is a gastronomic food shop located a stone’s throw away from Woluwe Shopping Center (see Woluwe-Saint-Lambert).
After Uccle, Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is the most flourishing of Brussels’ municipalities. The prices of houses and apartments are, subsequently, very high. The rents are also expensive there.
