Important numbers and embassies

Important numbers
8. 7. 2013

You should have certain telephone numbers with you at all times or know them by heart.

The numbers of the most important institutions, which you might need, are mostly three digits. You can get through to these wherever you are at any time free of charge.

  • Emergency calls 112 (this number works throughout the whole of Europe and includes universal medical aid, the police and the fire brigade, but it need not necessarily work on older mobile telephones without SIM cards)
  • Medical first aid 155
  • Police 158
  • Municipal Police 156 (they have limited authority and resolve smaller, local problems)
  • Fire Brigade 150

Embassies and consulates

In the event of any problems or in complicated situations, you can get help from your country’s embassy or consulate. A list of embassies and consulates with the necessary contact details can be found here.
