Essentially residential, Woluwe-Saint-Pierre has a large number of facilities for its residents, including an impressive sports centre
Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is considered to be one of the swankiest and greenest residential communes not only in Brussels but in the whole of Belgium.


Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is a cosmopolitan, essentially residential commune occupying 8.9 square kilometres, including 180 hectares of green spaces. Woluwe Park, the Mellaerts ponds and the Forêt de Soignes (Sonian Forest) are all great opportunities for some down time or leisure. Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is also the commune of choosing for foreign embassies.

The territory of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is traversed by two main roads: Avenue de Tervueren, built for the 1897 universal exposition, which connects the centre of the city with the Forêt de Soignes, and Boulevard de la Woluwe, which runs parallel to the stream that gives its name to the commune. Woluwe-Saint-Pierre has managed to retain its harmonious layout and there are a lot of architectural treasures waiting to be explored around Avenue de Tervueren. Starting with the first-rate Stoclet palace, for which Joseph Hoffmann drew the plans in 1905.

Woluwe-Saint-Pierre has a large number of facilities for its residents, including an impressive sports centre, one of the best in the Brussels-Capital Region, where more than 40 disciplines are practised. Cultural life is based around several centres: in and around the town hall (with library), museums (the Museum of Brussels Urban Transport) and Bibliotheca Wittockiana.
