Citizens office (Biergeramt)

A- A+

The “Biergeramt” (citizen’s office) is the department that citizens are probably most familiar with. This is where they can obtain civil documents, certificates, certified copies, disability cards and residential parking stickers, apply for identity cards and biometric passports or make declarations of arrival, departure or death.

From 3 May 2021, the offices of the Biergeramt are once again accessible to the public in compliance with the sanitary measures and rules in force (physical distance of 2 meters, compulsory wearing of a mask) and to the usual opening hours.

A maximum of 8 people will be allowed in the waiting room on the first floor of the municipality and access to the different offices will be limited to 2 people per office.

In order to continue to protect our citizens as well as the municipal staff, we ask the population to come to the Town Hall only in case of absolute necessity. Contacts can be made by email (,, or by phone
(+352 58 77 1 01).

PLEASE NOTE: application for an identity card or passport is only possible by appointment!
