Open Days – Europarliament

sam_6360.jpgParliament opens its doors to the public in Brussels this Saturday from 10.00 to 18.00 CET. It’s an opportunity to explore the plenary chamber, join a guided tour and take part in debates. In addition visitors enjoy the chance to be among the first to visit the House of European History, a new museum that is opening its doors on the same day.

Like every year, Parliament opens to the public to celebrate Europe Day, marking the speech by French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman that led to the foundation of the European Union. It allows people to visit Parliament and the other EU institutions and discover what Europe is and how it works by taking part in different activities.

13:15-14:00     Free rail pass

As a special treat this year, the House of European History, a new museum next to Parliament, is also launched on Saturday. Visit it to discover a treasure of artifacts and memories linked to Europe’s history and the EU.
