Residential Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is also home to many businesses and the UCL university complex
Woluwe-Saint-Lambert commune is a great place to live, with plenty of green and convenient transport connections.


Traversed by the Woluwe valley, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert is a residential commune covering 7.2 square kilometres in the eastern part of the Brussels agglomeration. This is a commune of contrasts, with the vestiges of rural housing alongside the UCL university complex and a host of corporate headquarters and administrative centres.

The commune is home to Woluwe Shopping Center, but there is plenty of greenery to balance the retail with six parks – Malou, Georges Henri, Sources, Roodebeek, Slot and Neerveld and two impressive gardens – Tomberg and Plantes médicinales. Culture is highly prized in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert too, as shown by the large number of creative centres, including Ateliers du Temps libre, Ateliers créatifs Schuman, Ateliers de la Rue Voot and Ateliers Malou.

Townhouses and opulent buildings stand shoulder to shoulder along the main roads that mark out the neighbourhood - Avenue de Tervueren, Avenue de Broqueville, Boulevard Saint-Michel to name but three – but the commune is anything but one-sided. Thanks to gradual development in the course of more than a century Woluwe-Saint-Lambert has managed to blend into the city without compromising the attractions of a spacious, well appointed lifestyle, with a range of community facilities, lots of greenery and great transport links.
