Located in the north-west of Brussels and crossed by Avenue Charles-Quint, the commune of Ganshoren is a reflection of its history. It remains both rural and residential, old and modern, exceptionally green and of an unexplored rich heritage.
One of Ganshoren's assets are its green spaces. Ganshoren marsh - a listed site since 1995 due to its scientific, aesthetic and historical value - has been a recognised regional nature reserve since 1998 and is a Natura 2000 special conservation area. The marsh, which is home to remarkable flora and fauna, attracts a wide variety of birds, as well as small mammals, amphibians and snakes.
Ganshoren has a great diversity of architectural styles. It includes works by architects Antoine Pompe, Jean Delhaye and Raoul Brunswyck, houses with Art Nouveau, Neo-Gothic and English cottage influences.
Ganshoren also houses works of art by Hanneke Beaumont and Koenraad Tinel.
