It’s hands down one of the most multicultural neighborhoods in Brussels...
This gorgeous neighborhood has a lot to offer those who give it a chance. From a stunning Christmas market held within an old-world castle, to large expanses of nature and greenery in Scheutbos, this place hasn’t lost its Belgian personality.
Places to visit: the grounds of Karreveld Castle are filled with graceful swans and tantalizing nature paths. To learn about Molenbeek’s rich industrial past, see the Brussels Museum of Industry and Labor.
Things to do: avoid the hordes of tourists. Dive into the multicultural vibe at the Sunday market. It’s held at the Place Communale Molenbeek. You’ll find no shortage of tasty ethnic food there.
Transport links: there are dozens of light rail and bus connections here, as well as several Metro stops. The most central Metro station is Beekkant, serving lines 2, 5, and 6.
