My study abroad group visited the EU Parliament and got to sit in on a session. It was pretty cool. Everything was led by a guide from the organization so I am not sure how much of this is accessible to the public. I only saw large groups of visitors that looked to be students from other schools.

When in Strasbourg you have to see the EU building. It is a wonder of architecture and was an incredible sight to see. If you take one of the canal tours, you will get to float around it.

Couldn't see much inside since it was a holiday however just going in the interior court and admiring the building surrounding me was a nice experience.

This building is one of the most unique architectural structures you will see. The building is an open ring (partly unfinished to symbolize that the EU is not yet finished) connected to what appears is a giant saucer along the river. The interior of the building is full of open spaces, light and plants. The chamber where the representatives meet... More

The size of it is mind-blowing. It can spotted from afar. Easy to reach by tram, and plenty of canal boats take tours past it. I prefer to run along the canal, and see it grow ever bigger as you approach. It's also right next to the Council of Europe and a short walk to the European Court of Human... More

This quarter is easily reachable by tram and once there it is quite impressive. The buildings are by the river and they are surrounded by water and trees. In the fall, the color of the leafs turn red and it is a quite a view

One of the 3 holy spots for any Eurofederalist. Check online for guided tours, in a fully free and seriously surprising half-hundred selection of languages.

That's all it was. I know that you can schedule visits, that the Orangerie is said to be lovely to stroll in, but I settled, on my few days in the charming city of Strasbourg, to see the exteriors of the EU complex from a tour boat. And it was impressive! I'm a big fan of the European Union for... More

Well, there it is. Noble idea but dysfunctional like the UN. Interesting building and easy walking distance from the city center. Personally I would opt for the historic old center first. I did enjoy seeing the Kurds protest in the street. They surely have a reason to protest with the atrocities currently commuted by ISIS in their homeland.
