Visit the Alsace-Moselle MemorialFind out about the complex history of this border-region.

Between 1870 and 1945, Alsacians and Mosellans (natives of the region) changed their nationality four times as the border region became a flashpoint for Franco-German rivalry. A visit to the Alsace-Moselle Memorial lasts about 1½ hours and is an excellent complement to a visit to the European Parliament.  

Audio guides are available in English, French and German and the memorial is fully accessible for people with disabilities.

Admission is free of charge for groups also visiting the European Parliament during the same week, upon presentation of their confirmation letter.
