I like the railway walk as it’s something a bit different and unexpected. It takes you along a cemetery and industrial sites, passing through green spaces which border the vast avenue de Tervuren. It's a way of discovering intimate secrets of Brussels, its nooks and other hideaways.

A walk through time


An incredible small camouflaged path of 6 km, the railway walk is spared from the traffic and hubbub of the city, crossing through the municipalities of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert and Auderghem, following a disused railway track that - recently renovated - has become a favourite route for backpackers and other Sunday walkers.


Lunch stop 




The railway walk promotes the migration and prolific development of flora and fauna. As a reminder of the railway era, you'll come across the charming Woluwe-Avenue station, long since abandoned and overlooking avenue de Tervuren. The station has been converted into a prestigious gastro restaurant, le Vignoble de Margot, which owes its name to the 650 vines which surround it. I adore stopping off here after bracing walks.

My fashion job takes me around the world throughout the year. I love flea markets and hunting for antiques year round, meeting up with friends at art show openings, going to fashion shows and being first to discover a new restaurant.
My little extra: introducing people to the "arty" and underground side of Brussels!"
