Sint-Gillis, Sint-Jans-Molenbeek and Koekelberg, are nearby areas which are also worth exploring.
If you love nature and wildlife, go and check out the nearby parks and reserves. These are good spots to breathe deeply and relax. Follow the paths through botanical displays, mingle with locals, or just enjoy the fresh air at Astrid Park.
To browse through stores and buy some souvenirs, browse Midi Market.
Constant Vanden Stock Stadium is the perfect place to spend an afternoon enjoying soccer, and to see local legends, the RSC Anderlecht, in all their glory. On match days the stadium becomes a sea of purple and white, as soccer fans come together to support their home-grown heroes.
After a long day exploring the delights of Anderlecht, relax for the night at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. Check out the rooms and rates at the Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre, the Novotel Brussels Midi Station, or the Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi.
