Chateau du Karreveld
Avenue Jean de la Hoese 32, 1080 Molenbeek-Saint-Jean
Two mills ("molen"), a stream ("beek") and a medieval patron saint (Saint-Jean-Baptiste) make up the name of Sint-Jans-Molenbeek / Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. It is a colourful municipality just a stone's throw from the busy centre of Brussels. Between old cobbled streets and boulevards, Molenbeek offers an unexpected set of contrasting landscapes. An urban laboratory and a crossroads of identities and origins... Molenbeek will surprise you!
