Look up beforehand when the plenary sessions are. Individual visits you don't need to book as long as they are in session - there are specific times I think it is 9-12 and then in the afternoons most weekdays when the MEPs are there.Easy to get to on the tram. Head for the middle of the atrium of the building,... More

just a building, no access anyways. not worth a visit on its own but the nature around it is nice. if going so far, would recommend stopping by the orange park

If in Strasbourg I think one has at least a moral duty to visit the European Parliament area. I suppose that from the inside its much more interesting. Unfortunately we were there during the weekend hence could not go inside. We took the tram, there is a station for this area. I will visit again

So I myself was a bit dissappointed. I somehow expected a more impressive building. But, it is worth going here simply for the photo opportunity

We took the tram out to the European Parliament area- the easiest way to get there. With no pre-planning, we wandered in to find that you could enter the public gallery quite freely, and watch the debate/ voting etc. You must have some photo ID with you (though in our case they accepted a UK bus pass!!) Ideally a passport... More

A sleek gleaming monstrosity of glass and steel and housing a vast sump of your money . The European parliament is moved here from Brussels lock ,stock and barrel once and sometimes twice a month at a staggering cost and after a four day junket off they go back to Brussels An extraordinary waste . And it is a shame... More

Went to visit this building and was impressed by the way European countries were united by this parliament building. We walked inside and around the gallery and were happy to spend almost 2 hours reading into the history of Europe. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Strasbourg.

What a total contrast to the beautiful medieval city of Strasbourg. This shimmering example of modern architecture plays heavily on the reflections of the nearby water. It is huge and impressive and sleek.

I was attending a plenary session for work and I got lost at least twice despite two previous visits. As one who finds the politics/history of the EU fascinating I would love to visit as a tourist and I observed lots of groups being escorted about. Gift shop expensive and food not great, in my opinion. Members may have better... More
