People who work here, in those giant buildings, are not even a little bit aware of what is really happening in the EU societies. They say they care, but only very few do really care. When you talk to them, it does not make any sense what they are talking about. They are ignorant of the real problems out there,... More

You can just walk into this impressive circular building with its central courtyard. But entering the actual edifice seemed only accessible to prearranged groups. Nevertheless, the art and narrative posters along the circumference of the atrium and the historic nature of the building itself made it a worthwhile tram stop--only a few stops from the Strasbourg Hilton.

Strasbourg has it all. It's a great city with loads to do and of great historical interest. The 'European Quarter' sadly shows off the worst of EU waste. Lovely city spoiled a bit by Eurocrats.

An alright sort of tour. Very upsetting for an Irish friend who was told her language wasn't a recognised language . Although it is. Apart from this a very nice trip out

......but it depends upon what side of the EEC divide you fall in, as to whether you view it with respect or disparagement. What cannot be in contention is the sheer scale and impact of it's presence among several other various European Institutional edifices that have been spawned around it. It certainly begs the question as to whether this vast... More

It was not possible to get in the building. We just walked around it and took some pictures. The best view is from the street, crossing the river.

A large modern structure best photographed from the river. Certain there are tours available and high season tour boats have a stop here.

But is a an interesting building as is it's purpose. The boat stood still for some time while the audio guide told us all about the building and it also then docked so some people could get off and get up closer.

Came here on an organised visit with a group, and despite having spent a week in the building doing an MEU i learned a lot and was fascinated by the history and attention to detail of the building. Our guide was fantastic. The view from the terrace was spectacular! An impressive and inspiring place.
