The Candelaershuys is one of the twenty-two 'gemeenschapscentra' in Brussels. It is a social and cultural meeting-place that offers a wide range of high-standard events such as remarkable concerts, theatre, stand-up comedians, exhibitions, performances for children, creative youth-oriented programs, education and activities for senior citizens.
You can find the Candelaershuys in a stately mansion at the Brugmannlaan. It is easy to reach by tram (91 and 92 both stop nearby at Boetendael). If you come by car it is best to use the urban highway around Brussels (the "Ring"). Take the exit Ruisbroek-Drogenbos and follow the direction of Ukkel. Then take the Verlengde Stallestraat and the Stallestraat which will lead you to the Brugmannlaan.
"De Hoorn" is the monthly newsletter of the gemeenschapscentrum. Each issue of 3,500 copies circulates in the region and informs about what is going on in Ukkel.
The gemeenschapscentrum has two sites : besides the Candelaershuys there is the Wijkhuis Carloo at the Alfons XIII-laan 68 in Ukkel Sint-Job.
About forty groups use the accomodations of the Candelaershuys for their meetings, their activities, their parties or simply for socializing.
Individuals can also hire the infrastructure for certain activities.
