Hotels near Ganshoren, Brussels, Belgium .


Ganshoren is one of the nineteen municipalities located in the Brussels-Capital Region of Belgium forming the bilingual region of Brussels-Capitale. On January 1, 2008 the municipality had a total population of 21,743. The total area is 2.5 km2 which gives a population density of 8,856 inhabitants per km².
The name of the municipality is the same in French and in Dutch, and the oldest mention of Ganshoren dates from 1112, on a document signed by Odon, the Bishop of Cambrai.
From 1801 to 1841, Ganshoren and the nearby Jette formed a single municipality. In 1836, Priest Vanderborght wrote a petition, signed by 126 paterfamilias of Ganshoren, requiring the separation of Ganshoren, who had then 100 more residents than Jette. The Law creating the Municipality of Ganshoren was voted on 31 March 1841.
The National Basilica of Koekelberg is located on the territories of both Ganshoren and Koekelberg. Since its main entrance is situated in Koekelberg, it administratively belongs to that municipality.

Until the 1950s, Ganshoren was mainly a rural municipality, in spite of the urbanization plan launched at the end of the XXth century. Its only factory, Nestor Martin produced stoves until 1986 and was known all over Europe as one of the most modern of the time.
Ancient farms still sit near the avenue Charles-Quint(Keizer Karellaan), expressway to the coast.
At the border of the neighbouring commune's Parc Baudouin(Boudewijnpark) lies the marsh of Ganshoren, a natural reserve rich in birdlife and, close to it, the castle of Rivieren.
In the front of the Basilica, the Park Elisabeth has a surface area of 21 ha, of which 9 are on the territory of Ganshoren. This park, one of Leopold II's projects, has a long public walkway with a children's playground.
Accommodation in the area can be found in Hotel Frederiksborg a beautiful hotel facing the Basilica.
