The Visits and Seminars Division of the Directorate-General for Information and Public Relations takes pleasure in presenting to you its programme of visits. The European Parliament receives groups of visitors in its three places of work, Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg, not only during part-sessions but also outside part-sessions. Visits last approximately one to three hours and include a talk, given by a European Parliament official, on what the EP is and how it works, followed by a question and answer session. Some visits include a video presentation or an exchange of views with an MEP.

VISITS IN STRASBOURG
Visits last three hours and include a general introduction, given by a European Parliament official, to what the EP is and how it works, possibly followed by a discussion with an MEP, if parliamentary business so permits, and observation of MEPs' debates 'live' from the Visitors' Gallery. The maximum number of visitors is 40, and participants must be at least 14 years old. Since we receive a substantial number of applications for visits during part-sessions, it is very unlikely that requests from groups other than those sponsored by one of the 626 MEPs will be accepted. Applications should be sent in writing to:

VISITS IN BRUSSELS
Visits last approximately between one to three hours and include a general introduction, given by a European Parliament official, to what the EP is and how it works, possibly followed by a discussion with one or more MEPs, insofar as parliamentary business so allows. When the European Parliament is in session, visitors will be able to observe MEPs' debates 'live'. During part-sessions, the maximum number of visitors in a group is 40, and participants must be at least 14 years old. Since we receive a large number of applications for visits during part-sessions, we would advise you to schedule your visit, where possible, for a period outside part-sessions. Audio-guided visits to the hemicycle of the European Parliament take place from Mondays to Thursdays at 10.00h and 15.00h and on Fridays at 10.00h only. There are no visits on official holidays. Reservations are not required. These visits are intended for individuals and not for groups. For further information, please contact the Visitors Service:

VISITS IN LUXEMBOURG
The European Parliament's Secretariat is based in Luxembourg. Most visits last about one hour and include a general introduction to the activities of the EP and the showing of a short film. Visits in Luxembourg are not possible when Parliament is holding a part-session in Strasbourg or Brussels. Applications for visits should be sent in writing to:
