The Avenue Louise runs southeast from the Place Louise/Louizaplein [nl] to the Bois de la Cambre/Ter Kamerenbos, covering a distance of 2.7 km (1.7 mi). It is one of the most prestigious and expensive avenues in Brussels, however at night it becomes an area of prostitution.[1][2][3] It is served by the metro station Louise/Louiza (on lines 2 and 6), as well as the tramway lines 8 and 93, which run its entire length.
