Modern architecture in Strasbourg

Quite impressive modern architecture. Some lovely canal pathways surrounding them too! About a 15 minute cycle from the centre of Strasbourg.

Boring nothing to do just look at the outside , quite a pretty area. Easy to get to by tram. Walked around the whole area. Saw human rights court too. Went to the park there, my children could not wait to get back on the tram and go elsewhere

While it is interesting to see the European Parliament buildings, I don't have much desire to spend much time there other than passing by on the boat tour. They are great buildings with more modern architecture, but there's really nothing else around to pique my interest. Go there to say you've seen them, and move on!

You'll need to plan ahead for this visit. You cannot just walk In. An advanced reservation is required. European visitors can contact their representatives. As Americans we needed the help of a local friend. Check with your hotel about access. The building is fascinating and we learned a lot about the parliament and how it works.

We did not enter the building, but drove around it, with a guide telling us the history of the European Parliament, and its role today. It was an interesting building. In streets nearby were trees with huge nests made by storks. We could see the birds on the nests. Fascinating!

Before I come to here, I don't know there is one European meeting place. It will s very nice. If you drive to there, it is better to go to "Avenue de l Europe" street and find the parking lot since the other area is block.

We were not able to see inside european parliament but could see only outside. Building itself impressive, and there are some other european building nearby.

location is quite inconvenient and far from city center, so if you just want to drop by and see the building you can do it but otherwise not necessarily worthing the trouble.

It was Sunday afternoon when we visited this building so we could not get in. We just viewed it from outside and took some photos of it and its surroundings. We were happy to know that there were also buildings of European Council and Human Rights building nearby. If you don't come with a car, it is quite easy to... More
