Line 1

Joséphine-Charlotte metro station is an Brussels metro station on line 1 (prior to 4 April 2009 the eastern branch of line 1B). It opened on 20 January 1976.

The name of the station is from the green square adjacent to the entrance (Joséphine-Charlottesquare / Square Joséphine-Charlotte) in the municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre / Sint-Pieters-Woluwe. The station is actually located entirely below Avenue de Broqueville.

In late 2008 the original "Pavimento Pirelli" black rubber flooring on the platforms was replaced with new biscuit-coloured terrazzo floor tiles.

Entrances at street level on Avenue de Broqueville are marked with "M" logo signs
