Last updated: 10.03.2015 // The Mission of Norway to the EU is located in Rue Archimède 17, right next door to the headquarter of the European Commission - Berlaymont - and close to the Council building, also known as Justus Lipsus.

To get to the Mission, either take the metro, bus or a taxi.

Taxi
Direction EU district/Schuman area. Rue Archimède is the street going straight north from the Schuman roundabout - "Rond point Schuman". There is a possibility to stop outside the entrance, but the parking facilities are very limited. A taxi-ride from the airport costs 30 € and takes 20-30 min., approximately.

From 06:00 until nearly midnight, the Airport City Express links the airport with Brussels South, Central and North four times an hour. A one-way ticket costs 4.30 € first class and 2.80 € second class. The train station is located on the basement (level 1) of the terminal building.

There are a limited number of stops on this "Airport Line": Troon/Trône - Luxemburg/Luxembourg - Schuman - Diamant - Genève – Germinal and NATO. The line operates between 4.57 a.m. and 11.57 p.m., with 3-4 departures per hour.
