Territory

Located in the north-east of the Brussels Agglomeration and covering an area of 8.1 square kilometres, Schaerbeek is a commune that is full of potential in terms of culture, architecture and quality of life. It is composed of a lot of neighbourhoods, many of which are cosmopolitan and very popular. Noteworthy sites include Josaphat Park, the town hall – which was built by Jules-Jacques Van Ysendijck in 1887, the Sainte-Marie royal church, Les Halles, the Maison des Arts, and many very well preserved art nouveau and art deco buildings.

There is a large collection of open-air sculptures in Josaphat Park, which is nestled among tree-lined avenues of townhouses.

Les Halles on Rue Royale Sainte-Marie, a former covered market in the characteristic metallic style of the late 19th century, has been transformed into an activity and artistic centre.
