During rush hour in Brussels, you can often reach your destination faster on foot than by car. As such, it's a useful alternative for getting about. And just like cycling, walking is a healthy and sustainable way to get about.
The Brussels-Capital Region has developed a pedestrian plan to promote getting about on foot. You can find more information about the plan on the Brussels Mobility website.
- One quarter of our daily trips are less than 1 kilometer. That is less than 15 minutes' walking.
- A healthy lifestyle includes half an hour's walk a day on average: to the supermarket around the corner on foot, ten minutes' walk to the train station or to school. So let's get walking!
- Fancy a breath of fresh air? The Sonian Forest has 5,000 hectares of forest and woods, and is just a stone's throw from the city centre.
Brussels Mobility is the administration of the Brussels-Capital Region responsible for equipment, infrastructure and mobility issues.
