A large part of Auderghem is covered by the Forêt de Soignes (Sonian Forest), which makes it a very lush commune.
Part city part forest – a third of its surface area is covered by the Forêt de Soignes (Sonian Forest) and large parks – Auderghem is one of the most pleasant residential communes in the Brussels agglomeration.


Located to the southeast of the City of Brussels, along the Woluwe valley and on the edge of the Forêt de Soignes, Auderghem is blessed when it comes to natural beauty.

Despite three main roads (Boulevard du Souverain, Chaussée de Wavre, Viaduc Herrmann-Debroux) running through its territory, Auderghem has managed to protect a relatively large proportion of its natural and historical heritage: the ponds, the Beruck family’s Rouge-Cloître abbey and its art centre, the Château de la Solitude, Val Duchesse priory, Château de Trois-Fontaines, Château Sainte-Anne and the remarkable Sainte-Anne chapel.

Sited along the main road into Brussels from the south, Auderghem boasts several metro stations, new offices and shopping centres close to the start of the motorway towards Namur.
The spacious neighbourhoods of villas next to the forest are alternated with older, more modest neighbourhoods that are now undergoing renovation.

Bordering Etterbeek, Ixelles, Woluwe-Saint-Pierre and Watermael-Boitsfort, Auderghem covers 10.52 square kilometres.
