Visit the European Parliament European Parliament, Come and Be part of it

The European Parliament is based in Strasbourg, Luxembourg and Brussels. Most of the plenary sessions are held in Strasbourg, although the Members of the European Parliament have their main offices in Brussels, while Luxembourg hosts parts of the administration.

Visiting the European Parliament is a great way to find out about its work as the voice of European Union citizens, and about the impact it makes across both Europe and the world.

There is plenty to see and do in Brussels, be it visiting the hemicycle or exploring the cutting-edge Parlamentarium, experiencing the Role Play Game or discovering the past in the much-anticipated House of European History. These activities are designed to showcase and explain how the European Parliament works, where it came from and what it does for European Union citizens. They are all completely free of charge, and nearly all are available in each of the EU’s 24 official languages.

It’s also possible to visit the hemicycle in Strasbourg, which is where most of the plenary sessions are held and where the Euroscola programme for schools is based. A trip to the nearby Alsace Moselle Memorial in Schirmeck is an excellent complement to a trip to the European Parliament.

In Luxembourg, you can discover the European Parliament’s first purpose-built hemicycle and other buildings.
