The European ParliamentReturn
Construction of the glass, sandstone and wood building was completed in 1999. Its sleek design soars impressively.
Simply going inside the building, to the centre of its hollow oval tower (60 metres high) will give you a sense of its grandeur.
The tower opens out towards the Cathedral.
The building’s total surface area is 220,000 sq. metres!
It includes a hemicycle with more than 800 seats, 1,133 offices and 18 commission rooms used by the 751 Members of the European Parliament elected by the 28 Member States of the European Union.
