    * Suburbs of Brussels
    * Suburbs of Antwerp

    Naturally, Brussels and its suburbs are the most expensive area, followed by the best suburbs of Antwerp. Two municipalities at the Belgian seaside, and two others right on the border of the Netherlands also make the top 50.

    If we include the southern outskirt of Brussels, 9 municipalities in the top 50 are located in Wallonia (Lasne, La Hulpe, Rixensart, Waterloo, Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, Chaumont-Gistoux, Grez-Doiceau, Assesse and Walhain). 22 are in Flanders, including 7 in bilingual suburbs of Brussels, where the Francophones represents 1/3 to 2/3 of the commune's population (Linkebeek, Rhode-St-Genese, Overijse, Tervuren, Kraainem, Wezembeek-Oppem and Zaventem).

    The three cheapest municipalities in Belgium are Colfontaine (67,056), Quargnon (69,909) and Boussu (71,180), all in the suburbs of Mons. Mons itself is the 50th cheapest nationwide. The Hainaut province is by far the poorest. Indeed, over half of the 50 cheapest municipalities are located in Hainaut, especially around Mons, La Louviere and Charleroi, and along the French border. Two communes of the bottom 50 are in the German-speaking region. Only 4 of the cheapest municipalities are in Flanders.


    Here is a map of the 50 most expensive and 50 cheapest communes in Belgium.


    Conclusion, the French-speaking part of Belgium (Brussels included) has the biggest share of the dearest and cheapest places to live in Belgium, reflecting bigger socio-economic gaps than among Dutch speakers.
