European Parliament (Hemicycle visits), Brussels

(3.1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit European Parliament (Hemicycle visits) and other Brussels attractions using our handy Brussels tourist route planner.

  • The Parliament of the European Community, is a very beautiful, modern and light, full of meanings for the whole of Europe. Worth the visit, photos, especially where have all those flags lined up!

  • An exciting complex of buildings and Parliament on this occasion once to see worth it from the inside. There are unfortunately only twice daily guided tours (10 and 15: 00), but these are very informative and not too long (with many questions that came in our group, the leadership has lasted less than an hour). We've got lots of exciting information. I guess when you're as Europeans in Brussels, you should see definitely times where all decisions are made and how the atmosphere there is. Tip: One should be before the times review for the tours and then about 15 minutes there earlier because you must register and everything through is scanned once...
