The European ParliamentReturn
Its 750-seat debating chamber, completed in 1999, is designed to host this institution’s monthly sessions.
The architecture of the building designed by Architecture Studio Europe is based on a combination of circles and ellipse, with the Parliament building being organised into several clearly identified areas:
- A wing shaped building. From this "wing" emerges the dome of the hemicycle debating chamber, designed for 750 MEPs,
- A 60 m high tower including 17 floors and 1 133 offices,
- Work place, communication and social areas.
The building has three internal "streets", with the main one featuring a winter garden including a forest of philodendrons.
Visits available for groups only, by writing beforehand to:
Bureau d'Information du Parlement Européen
Allée du Printemps - B.P. 1024 F
67070 STRASBOURG CEDEX
On 3 July 2017, a new space dedicated for visitors will open its doors in the heart of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Structured around three zones -a 360° projection room, a role-playing game for groups of 16-32 participants and a series of interactive modules- the parlamentarium Strasbourg offers the opportunity to better understand how the European Union operates, more specifically the role of the European Parliament, in an interactive and entertaining way.
