MyBXL maintenance and telephone accessibility

Due to maintenance works, the External site MyBXL citizen portal will be unavailable from Friday 2 December at 1 pm until Saturday 3 December at 7:30 am. Interruptions are still possible on Saturday 3 December. Due to the move of the services of the City of Brussels to the new Brucity Administrative Centre (on 12 December 2022), the waiting time for a telephone answer may be temporarily longer as well.


Energy measures for public and Christmas lighting

Increased dimming of remote-controlled lights:

  • reducing by 20% on 100% lights
  • reducing by 10% on other lights

Christmas lights

Changes for the Christmas lights: from 8 December 2022 to 8 January 2023, from 5 pm to 11 pm.

Excluding the lights for the Winter Wonders event and Christmas events or markets.
