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...More

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.

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.

We actually thought the council of Europe and the European Parliament were one and the same, however, our guide did a very good job of explaining that they are actually two separate entities. The tour lasted about an hour and gave the audience plenty of...More

We saw this building whilst on a guided tour of the city. It was nice to see (in a strange way) the European Parliament. Our guide told us that it is possible to visit inside but tours must be booked in advance.

Of course, the building is quite big and impressive, if you like this kind of architecture. But apart from that, there is nothing to do or see and it is quite a way to get there. Plus, you cannot enter it as an individual, only...More
