Planning your visit
Before coming, contact us so we can make your visit as convenient as possible:

  • If not - or if it's your first visit, tell us what you're looking for, so we can help you further. You will receive a response from us within 15 working days.
  • Due to reinforced security measures, you are kindly requested to return by e-mail, at least 3 working days ahead of your visit an Excel completed form.
