Etterbeek Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 64 photos

Etterbeek, the central commune of Brussels, incorporates the European district and the Cinquantenaire / Jubelpark-complex. The urbanisation of the commune dates back from the 19th century. For over half a century, Etterbeek was garrisoned. What are now the ULB and VUB university campuses used to be the parade grounds of the barracks erected between 1875 and 1883. Etterbeek is close both to downtown and the big Brussels forest (called forêt de Soignes / Zoniënwoud). There are a lot of green areas (for example the Cinquantenaire park) and shopping area : La Chasse / Jacht, rue des Tongres / Tongerenstraat and place Jourdan / Jourdanplein with its reknowned market.
