the building is beautiful and it feels like you "touch the politics" or feel as a part of decision-making process. but all in all, if you are not interested in European politics, it will be boring. all you can do there: read, listen and shop at the souvenir store. the admission is free, there are lockers inside if you want...

Loads of meaningless pictures and lampshade in which you stick your head. What a load of very expensive rubbish telling everybody how wonderful this EU project is. The sad thing is that they believe their own propaganda. Is it was raining outside with temperatures below zero we still wouldn't go in. At least we can see pictures of the 750... More

Great interactive visitor experience which presents and tells the story of the EU very well indeed. You can access as much or as little detail as you want and it even makes potentially boring content very interesting. Probably not suitable for children but for teenagers and above it is engaging and very worthwhile.

After a relatively long walk on a wet day,when we arrived we were advised that entry was not possible on Friday afternoons.This was not not made clear in any of the local literature and there were several other disappointed visitors.

There are several languages from which to choose your audioguide. There is a lot of information about how the european parliament camr to be and the situation in every country during that period. It was a nice touch that even the audioguide was free

The visitors center of the European Parliament. You can understand the role of the EP, go through its history,its composition while browsing in a modern space at the ground floor of one of the EP buildings.

By "plan your visit", I mean to schedule sufficient time into this attraction. It shows its visitors not only the history behind and during the forming of what it is now the European Union, but also how it usually works and its influence in the daily life of citizens living in the member countries. As a non-European I learned how... More

I would definitely recommend to visit this such as nice spot. We had good walk around just before we enter the visitor centre. There is the security gates like in the airport, earphones for listening everything you see, a lot of information about parliament, some lovely interactive media's. The visit is free and good organised. You can find little souvenir... More
