Strasbourg, the iconic European Capital

European parliament Strasbourg

Rich of more than 2000 years of history, Strasbourg is famous for its well-known Christmas market, but that’s not all, Strasbourg is also the European capital. With its emblematic European district of no less than 9 institutions, Strasbourg is one of the few cities in the world to host European institutions without necessarily being a capital.

Just a few minutes from its renowned historic centre, the European Parliament is the heart of the European Union. Find the calendar of the plenary sessions and assemblies if you wish to attend these events, note that you can also visit the European Parliament outside of session weeks.
