The green commune of Jette is located 5 km from the centre of Brussels
Jette offers urbanites the health-giving shelter of nature, with five parks - Jeunesse, Garcet, Huybrechts, Liebrecht and Roi Baudouin.


Located 5 km from the centre of Brussels but well served by public transport, Jette is an old village that was absorbed into the city. The balance between housing and enterprise has been subtly maintained.

Jette is bordered by City of Brussels (Laeken), Koekelberg, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Ganshoren.

A green lung in the northwest of the capital, the territory of Jette includes 5 square kilometres of the Poelbos nature reserve, the Bois du Laerbeek and the Bois de Dieleghem as well as the Roi Baudouin Park, which extends over a hundred hectares, and the Liebrecht Park.
As a family commune par excellence, Jette is where you practice the art of living well. The little ones can be introduced to the tenets of ecology and environmental protection at the children’s farm.

The Miroir neighbourhood is crammed with shops and plays host to one of the capital’s biggest markets every Sunday.
