The European Parliament is based in Strasbourg, Luxembourg and Brussels. Strasbourg holds most of the plenary sessions, although the Members of the European Parliament have their main offices in Brussels and Luxembourg hosts parts of the parliament's administration.
Visiting the European Parliament is a great way to find out about its work and the impact it makes across Europe, as the voice of European Union citizens.
There is plenty to see and do in Brussels, be it visiting the Hemicycle (Chamber tour and briefing for groups || Chamber tour for individuals) 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 Parliament works, where it came from and what it does for European Union citizens. All the activities are completely free of charge and nearly all are available in each of the European Union's 24 official languages.
It's also possible to visit the Hemicycle in Strasbourg, which plays host to Euroscola, the European Parliament's programme for schools.
