The Marolles/Marollen – a neighbourhood of encounters

The Marolles/Marollen is a neighbourhood of contrasts, between the upper and lower parts of the city, between tenuous and wealthy ways of life – a melting point of cultures, generations and languages. This makes it a fantastic place to meet and engage with others! With its streets and alleyways, its huge flee market and its small shops, its social housing and its playgrounds, restaurants and cafés, schools and churches, and even a bank and a swimming pool like no other, the Marolles/Marollen is an area just waiting to be explored – along with its greatest asset: the warmth of its people and its boundless diversity.

In cooperation with Brussels Chatterguides.
