Visit the European Parliament
Visit the EU institution representing European citizens. The European Parliament welcomes group and individual visitors in Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg.
Brussels hosts the main offices of the MEPs and some of Parliament's plenary sessions are held here. Discover the Parliament and its plenary chamber, with the help of a handheld media-guide. Visit the Parlamentarium (Visitors' Centre), where dynamic, interactive multimedia displays will guide you through the journey of European integration and the impact it has on our everyday lives. Check out the House of European History which gives visitors the opportunity to learn about European history and to engage in critical reflection about its meaning for the present day.
Strasbourg is the official seat of the European Parliament. Each month, Members gather here for four days to vote and debate in a series of meetings known as plenary sessions. Whether rejecting, amending or adopting proposals, this week is a high-point in the EU's law-making process. Visitors are invited to sit in on these sessions, and to find out more about this representative body in an informative talk lasting approximately one hour. You can visit the European Parliament chamber in Strasbourg both during and outside the very lively plenary weeks.
Visit the site of the first administrative seat of the European Parliament in Luxembourg and see its Hemicycle during a free guided tour. Visits last around an hour and include a presentation on the European Parliament and the European institutions.
All visits are free of charge and are organised for groups of 20 to 50 people. Group leaders are asked to make their booking at least two months in advance. All participants must be at least 14 years old.
The European Parliament has a Liaison Office in every Member State. Their role is to provide information on the European Parliament, on MEPs and their activities, and on issues currently being considered by Parliament which are of significance for the Member State and for Europe as a whole.
We welcome groups to the office for information briefings. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
