Schaarbeek is a municipal area in the Brussels capital region. The first time this village was mentioned in history was in 1120, by the name Scarenbecca. It was once known as a village where sour cherries were cultivated, but it has now become the industrial suburb of the city where machinery, chemicals, and clothing are manufactured. The eastern side of Schaarbeek is occupied by more affluent people who find the close proximity to the capital city, airports, and highways, very convenient for their lifestyle. The western side is favoured by mostly Turkish and Moroccan immigrant communities, which makes this area interestingly diverse.
- Take a walk in Josaphat Park in Schaarbeek, a beautiful wooded park that boasts a number of sculptures, it is divided into various sports areas, tennis courts, football fields, and clubs, although no cycling is allowed here.
- Visit the Planetarium of the Royal Observatory of Belgium in Brussels, north of Schaarbeek, for a fantastic voyage of discovery among the planets viewed on a dome-shaped screen, one of the largest in Europe.
- Visit Sainte Marie Church, the only Byzantine-style church in Brussels, situated in Schaarbeek, and be amazed at the exquisite architecture and the impressive bronze doors.
When you arrive at Brussels International Airport you will have adequate transport to Schaarbeek. There are frequent bus and train services, rental cars, and metered taxis available. Although Schaarbeek has its own railway station, only local trains stop there, tram #92 and bus route #58stop in front of this station. The underground, bus, and tram services are run by STIB so there is no problem using the same ticket if you switch from one to the other.
