An even warmer welcome for visitor groups
The European Parliament has a new welcome point for groups arriving by bus on Rue d’Ardenne. The Atrium is the ideal place to freshen up and take a moment to relax before visiting the Hemicycle, the Parlamentarium or the House of European History after it opens in spring 2017. You’ll be able to find out about some of the inspiring figures of the European Union and the famous personalities who have set foot in the European Parliament. Staff will also be available to answer your questions and make sure you’re ready to dive into all things European Parliament.
There’s no better way to see what the European Parliament has to offer than through the eyes of visitors themselves. Watch the video below to see how four video bloggers were invited to Brussels to give a genuine account of visiting the European Parliament.
