European Parliament (Hemicycle visits), Brussels

3.3
See the seat of European Union decision-making at European Parliament (Hemicycle visits), where you can view the parliament in session. Reserve an audio tour that leads you through the chamber and public rooms as you gather information about the day-to-day activities of the parliament. Along the way you'll see European delegates, lawyers, and government officials shuffling between offices and chambers. You are allowed to take a picture in front of the flags, but nowhere else in the building, so save your camera battery for the end of the tour. Admission is free and the tour is short, so consider including a visit to the nearby planetarium while you are in the area.

  • In the head of Europe!
  • Big building, but not worth it. There is little to see, and nothing happens. If something happened, it is not accessible!
