Open day for 'citizens' on 2nd May only. Not to be missed. Brilliant to be able to wander round inside including the debating chambers - very well organised, and very informal. We arrived at 5pm and left at about 7pm (it closes at 6pm). It must have cost millions of Euros just for that day. But we thoroughly enjoyed seeing... More

I've always heard of the European Parliament but being there in person makes such a difference. Seeing the flags of each European countries waving is so breathtaking.

I e-mailed a request to the address referenced on the European Parliament web-site and my wife and I were added to an English language group guided tour of the Parliament building. This is an impressive facility and the tour guide was great.

Helps better understanding how decisions are made .... especially take a look at the information boards in the corridors to get sense of the work of the different lobbyists ...

The intrepid Travelling Gourmet TM visits the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the ALSACE where the MACABRE sculpture called..."The Petrified Seven" which is a statement against torture, really creeped me out. The European parliament is really impressive, being gigantic and an example of modern architecture with lots and lots of glass and steel! I took the tram form the City Center... More

My study abroad group visited the EU Parliament and got to sit in on a session. It was pretty cool. Everything was led by a guide from the organization so I am not sure how much of this is accessible to the public. I only saw large groups of visitors that looked to be students from other schools.

When in Strasbourg you have to see the EU building. It is a wonder of architecture and was an incredible sight to see. If you take one of the canal tours, you will get to float around it.

This building is one of the most unique architectural structures you will see. The building is an open ring (partly unfinished to symbolize that the EU is not yet finished) connected to what appears is a giant saucer along the river. The interior of the building is full of open spaces, light and plants. The chamber where the representatives meet... More
