Uccle is essentially a residential commune.
Renowned for its middle-class neighbourhoods, tranquillity and abundance of green spaces, yet not too far from the centre of Brussels, Uccle is much in demand among families.


Uccle, which covers 22.9 square kilometres, is one of the largest communes in the Brussels agglomeration and the fourth biggest in terms of population. The large number of green spaces on top of more than 500 hectares of the Forêt de Soignes (Sonian Forest) make Uccle an essentially residential commune.

Uccle commune was established in 1795, during the French domination, by merging Uccle and the domains of Carloo and Stalle. A large number of noble families built their manor houses in the area.

Located to the south of the city centre, Uccle commune developed quickly, thanks to the two roads that cross it: Chaussée de Waterloo, which leads to Charleroi, and Chaussée d’Alsemberg, which leads to Brabant wallon. Uccle is a mix of pleasant neighbourhoods of villas and old village centres. It also boasts many listed buildings and sites.
