Berchem-Sainte-Agathe is one of the nineteen municipalities located in the Brussels-Capital Region, situated in the north-west of the centre of the city of Brussels. With a population of 23,000 and a surface area of 295 hectares, Sint-Agatha-Berchem is one of the smallest municipalities in the Brussels region and borders the municipalities of Dilbeek, Asse, Ganshoren, Koekelberg and Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. Accessible by train thanks to the Berchem railway station, there are also numerous bus and tram stops. The municipality is blessed with architectural riches, and the Cité Moderne, a housing project dating from 1925 designed by the architect Victor Bourgeois, which is a prime example of large-scale European cubist architecture, does not look out of place. Nature-lovers can enjoy the Hoogveld, the Bois du Wilder and the Zavelenberg. Although on the border of the region, property prices are high, with an average of over EUR 300,000.
