An architectural gem of Saint-Gilles, the Victor Boin swimming pool is my favourite place for keeping fit through the winter. It combines aesthetics and comfort. Starting my day in this spacious and open place immediately puts me in a good mood.


A fine communal swimming pool


With its main pool 33 metres long and 13 metres wide, the Victor Boin pool is an ideal place to swim. I love its family atmosphere, even though it is often very busy. It is best to go early in the morning to avoid the afternoon crowds. For just a few euros you can make your modest contribution to your personal fitness. The water is heated to 27 degrees, a temperature one particularly values in January. I try to go there at least 3 times a week and to stay about 1 hour, the point being generally to boost my mental and physical strength.



110 years of good and loyal service


You cannot miss the swimming pool in the Saint-Gilles quarter, which has been a source of great enjoyment for generations of swimmers. The welcome is good-natured and the staff are always courteous and helpful.

Open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8am to 7 pm, Wednesdays from 2 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 6 pm.

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!"
