In Uccle, behind the door of number 333 rue de Stalle lies the best hidden aquatic secret in Brussels.

In fact, the centre called « Nemo 33 » contains the world's deepest diving pool with 2500 cubic metres of water and its 33-metre-deep well (the equivalent of a twelve-storey building!).

Of course, this diving facility isn't open to everyone: only the most experienced divers who have passed the necessary diplomas can enjoy the intoxicating experience of such deep waters, at a cost of 15 euros per session. For the others, either beginners or total novices, the centre organises many training sessions for adults and/or children (from age 12 upwards) via the « Nemo 33 academy », in partnership with the well-known « Professional Association of Diving Instructors » (PADI).


We should end by mentioning that « Nemo 33 » also has two other wells of five and ten metres respectively; a stress-relief clinic; runs aquagym classes and serves Asian cuisine in the clubhouse overlooking the pools.
