There are several big buildings for friends of modern architechture. The European Parliament, court of human rights building, Council of Europe Agora building just opposite.

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.

Nice to see, but for sure not a must, unless it's for your self-esteem to have visited the palace of the European Council. The palace is outside of the city. Approx. 3km from the centre of Strasbourg.
