Bockstael Metro Station is one of the metro stations on line 6 of the Brussels Metro. It was opened in 1982 and named after the "Place Émile Bockstael/Émile Bockstaelplein". Prior to the opening of the extension to the Heizel/Heysel metro station in 1985, the station was the western terminus of line 1A (now line 6).

The station allows transfer to and from suburban railway line 50 to Aalst and Dendermonde via Belgian Rail. A two track railway station with side platforms is integrated into the subway complex and replaced the old railway station of Laken, located about 200m eastwards.
