I visited the European Parliament as part of a study abroad trip focused on International Relations. Visiting this building and seeing the delegates in session was a real treat! The building has very interesting architecture on the inside and out and the employees are full of knowledge. This is a must-stop for any political nerds!

Trillions of dollars have been spent on this monstrous glass building...to house people with expensive salaries to make rules for the stupid people who are paying their salaries. What a complete waste of money to ensure European counties stay friends and do not go to war...what is happening to make us think this wasted space is ok?

This place is important but not that impressive. People are nice and the building quite beautiful. As a minus - the food is a bit expensive for a EU official building.

We hired bikes from the station and rode to the Parliament precinct. This is an easy ride and recommended. There are no individual tours but there was an excellent English explanatory booklet.

It has an interesting shape and being made of glass makes it very pretty. Lovely plants you can see on the outside make you think they have taken seriously the enviroment around, but once you are inside it is as boring as you can get: long corridors leading to thousands of identical doors. No plants really but just so identical... More

I like the information - interesting, if not all that detailed - and the attempts to liven it up. I like the greenery and beautiful surroundings of Strasbourg. I dislike the how external information is limited to about 6 boards spread out over the buildings.

Go there just if you are interested in modern architecture. It is quite far from the center of Strasbourg: it will require about 30 min on foot or you can take the tram.

I had the honour to represent my country, Malta, in the Euroscola session. Just going around this magnificent building and the work that is done is breathtaking! If I had the chance to go again I'd do so without any hesitation!

I had the honor to represent my country Cyprus at the Euroscola program at the European Parliament. It is just an amazing building. I celebrated my 17th birthday there and I heard the birthday song in 6 different languages. Everyone there was very kind and helpful

Seriously impressive building, very near to the Parc L'Orangerie. Would definitely recommend a trip to both of these at the same time.
