Closing of counters on Friday 9 December 2022

Due to the move of the services of the City of Brussels, the counters of the former Administrative Centre (Boulevard Anspach 6 - 1000 Brussels) will close as early as Friday 9 December 2022. You can still request your documents online and on the External site MyBXL citizen portal, or make an appointment. Due to the move, the waiting time for a telephone answer may be temporarily longer as well.


New book about sewers of Brussels

The book Les entrailles de la ville: le charme discret des égouts bruxellois is the new publication of the Historia Bruxellae collection of the Museums of the City of Brussels. Discover how the history of the Senne and the sewers are intimately linked and why they still play a role in the water management of the city today. This publication is only available in French and Dutch.

Where is the Senne hiding today? What does the extensive network that discharges our waste water actually look like? Who are the people responsible for maintenance on a daily basis and in what circumstances do they have to work? How does the city centre (in the valley) escape from flooding? What challenges does water treatment face in the 21st century?

These and many other questions are discussed on 68 richly illustrated pages.

How to order?

The publication is only available in French and Dutch. More info:
