The European Union has a major presence in this city and this huge building is evidence of that. Not especially pretty but it is impressive and should be observed as a part of your city tour.

Good to see where all the Eurodecisions are partially made. Makes you appreciate the enormous costs of keeping all these buildings and those in Brussels running!!

Important building, very modern and functional, is the place where European countries settle their legal disputes.

You can get there by tram E, and you will wonder, because there are nothing around. Unfortunately the people who are sitting there and representing us, don't know what they are doing. And by the way - the costs to have 2 European capital are enorm. And this is from our taxes.

The building can already be seen from quite a distance. Even though the materials and colors are very plain , the shape and location still make the building stand out even from far away.

No wonder Strasbourg has a great Architecture School, we saw the place from the boat ride and we also had the chance to ride our bikes around the area. It’s a very impressive building.

Once again we saw this when we were on our boat trip quite close to the European Parliament building.

As part of the European Union, France decided that this building must represent all of the countries of the EU, and the council of Europe. Many decisions for the European Union are drafted here. Worth visiting

Its ok, you cant go in, but if you enjoy law or politics worth a visit. Building itself is a bit disappointing but if you are in Strasbourg Id go.

There are several big buildings for friends of modern architechture. The European Parliament, court of human rights building, Council of Europe Agora building just opposite. A little bit older, huge Council of Europe building is particularly interesting. If possible to enter, worth a stroll, visit post office, bookshop, cafe and restaurant inside. Inside, it is quite a maze for start! Restaurant is very administration-like, but food is varied and good - nice selection of desserts.
