Europe House

Europe House is in the centre of The Hague, overlooking the Hofvijver and near city’s parliamentary headquarters at the Binnenhof.

Anyone home?

Europe House is home to two organizations involved in the European Union:

 

- European Parliament Information Office in the Netherlands

As its name suggests, this office provides the Dutch public with information about political discussions and decision-making in Europe, and what they mean for everyone living in the Netherlands.

 

- Representation of the European Commission in the Netherlands

As well as providing information, this organization is also in charge of updating Brussels on Dutch government policies and of maintaining good relations with foreign embassies in the Netherlands.

 

Info point

First and foremost, Europe House is an information point where anyone who wants to know anything about Europe can get an answer to their question. Lots of journalists and politicians rely on it for updates on the latest news from Brussels.

 

Looking for facts or news about the European Union? You’ve come to the right place! At Europe House you can find informational brochures, computers to search on and staff members to help you find what you’re looking for. Opening hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

European learning

For school pupils and students, Europe House offers lots to learn and discover. For example, you can plan a class trip to learn about all that goes on in Brussels. If you’re a teacher, visit our website to find out about all the options. Europe House also has an assembly hall that can be used to host debates, conferences, lectures, seminars and cultural events, entirely free of charge. What better way to give your debate some added weight and appeal than to hold it in an official assembly hall instead of a classroom or the school auditorium? Of course, the theme of the debate or conference should tie in somehow with Europe.
