The European Parliament welcomes visitors in its premises in Strasbourg both during and outside plenary weeks.
Visitors must be at least 14 years old. Secondary school pupils can also arrange trips as part of Euroscola.
During plenary sessions
Visits during plenary sessions are possible in most official EU languages and involve a presentation by an information officer, a discussion with an MEP if the parliamentary agenda allows and the opportunity to attend a plenary session. The guided visits are free, but should be booked two to three months in advance.
Outside plenary sessions
Groups can also visit the Parliament buildings outside the plenary sessions. The group programme comprises a guided tour of the European Parliament, including the plenary chamber, a short film and a general presentation about the Parliament by a member of staff. An in-depth briefing may be included on request.
Visits are conducted in English, French and German. Tours are free, but should be booked two to three months in advance.
During plenary week
There are a limited number of places for individual visitors during plenary sessions.
