The following are suggestions for how best to reach us by car, plane or public transport.
By car from Germany
From Germany via Aachen on the E40, follow the signs for Centre/Centrum along Avenue de Cortenberg to the Schumann roundabout. At the roundabout, take the second exit on the right and follow Rue de la Loi in the left lane for about 200 metres. Then turn left into Rue de Trêves which will take you to Place du Luxembourg. Now turn right onto Place du Luxembourg and then turn right at the next street corner into Rue d'Arlon. The European Representation of the German Social Insurance is located 20 metres on the left side at number 50 on the third floor.
From Brussels Airport
From Brussels Airport, you can take either take Bus No. 12 towards “Brussels City” until the “Luxembourg” bus stop or travel by train to the Bruxelles-Luxembourg railway station. From there it is just a short walk to the European Representation.
On workdays, there is a direct train connection. On weekends, you will need to change at Bruxelles-Nord railway station (see “By train”).
Travelling by bus takes slightly longer but is cheaper than travelling by train.
The European Representation is located at Rue d'Arlon 50 at “Place Luxembourg” close to Bruxelles-Luxembourg train station.
If your train stops at Bruxelles-Nord, you can change and take the regional train to Ottignies which goes directly to Bruxelles-Luxembourg station.

If your train ends at Bruxelles-Midi station, we recommend you continue your journey with the Metro and take Line 2 (towards Simonis/via Rogier) or Line 6 (towards Roi Baudouin) to the Trône Metro station. Exit the Metro station towards Rue du Luxembourg and go all the way down the street. At the end of the street, turn left into Rue d'Arlon. The European Representation is located about 40 metres away on the left-hand side of the street at number 50 on the third floor.
