    hi all. i wonder if anyone here knows if its practical to try to get from "Brussels Midi" to Dr. DeMeirleir's office by public transit, and if so, how?
    i tried to call some tourism place but cannot get a real person.
    thank you!
    xoxo

    You can take a train out there then a bus or taxi the rest of the way. That's what I did. The office can give you details..bus numbers etc.

    Yes, contact the office. But there is a train to Vilvoorde (just 2 stops) from one of the main stations and then bus # 47 from the Vilvoorde station to the clinic (get off at the Hoogveld stop).

    I take the train to Brussels Nord and then the train to Vilvoorde (direction Antwerp). Then you have to take bus 47 indeed. When you leave the station of Vilvoorde bus 47 is on your left, it's a different bus (MIVB, orange and grey ) then the others (De Lijn, jellow and white). You stop at Hoogveld, cross the road and Himmunitas is just 40m away.

    other people have given good answers. Only thing that I would say is that it is quite straightforward, especially the train part, and cheap and quick.

    hello all. I am near avenue louise now.....rue paul spaak 15 to be exact. I looked up google public transit directions to dr. demeirleir's office and they said to take tram 94 towards cim. de jette (?) - not sure where to get off - then walk to outré-ponts, take bus 57 towards hop. militaire, get off at dghr domaine militaire, then walk 6 min. to de tyraslaan 111.

    does anyone know if this sounds right ? I am a little scared of getting lost!

    thank you!!!

    Hope you've made it now and haven't had too much trouble! I'm not sure on that stuff really but his clinic is near the military hospital so it is likely correct or very close!
