How many postal codes are assigned to the Brussels Region?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 16/10/2019

Answer: 45

First of all there are the postal codes of the 19 municipalities. Some of these codes cover a territory shared over several municipalities (eg: 1040 covers Etterbeek and a small part of the City of Brussels).

Then, there are 3 codes assigned to old municipalities that are now integrated in the City of Brussels (Haren, Laeken and Neder-Over-Hembeek).

Finaly, the last 23 codes are assigned to large institutions such as public administrations, parliaments or main television channels.

You can find all the postal codes of Belgium on the Bpost website: http://www.bpost.be/site/fr/envoyer/adressage/rechercher-un-code-postal.
