Brussels European Parliament - EP

Brussels European Parliament -- The European Parliament is the only directly-elected body of the European Union. The 785 Members of the European Parliament are there to represent you, the citizen. They are elected once every five years by voters right across the 27 Member States of the European Union on behalf of its 492 million citizens.

The European Parliament has two meeting places, namely the Immeuble Louise Weiss in Strasbourg, France, which serves for plenary sessions and is the official seat and the Espace Léopold complex in Brussels, Belgium.

Most of the time, Parliament and the MEPs are based in Brussels where its specialist committees meet to scrutinize proposals for new EU laws. Parliament meets for one week a month in Strasbourg in full plenary session to amend and vote draft legislation and policy. A number of additional two-day plenary sessions are also held in Brussels.

The "European quarter" around the Schumann metro station is also worth strolling through. It is possible to visit some of the buildings in this area, which house the European Parliament, Council of Ministers, European Commission (the "government" of the European Union) and its administration. Perhaps most impressive is the recently erected European Parliament building, towering over the pretty parc that also houses the Natural History museum.

There is no shortage in hotels or other accommodation options in Brussels located within close distance of all European buildings and institutions.

The City of Brussels in Belgium

Brussels is an interesting city to visit for all members of the family. There is the Parlamentarium, where interactive displays take visitors through the processes of the EU Parliament, and it explains how the Commission affects all citizens of Europe every day.

Not too far away is the Museum of Natural Sciences which is a family favourite. The centrepiece of the city is the Grand Place, a vast space where there is a flower market, interesting architecture, coffee shops, local artists and plenty of sights to photograph. This square in central Brussel or Bruxelles offers different things throughout the year and there is always something amazing to see.

Close by is a selection of high-end stores if shopping is on your list of things to do. Other places to see include a beautiful cathedral, quaint streets, a fine art gallery and a huge park called Cinquantenaire. Of course, no visit to Brussels is complete without stopping by the famous fountain featuring a statue of a small boy answering the call of nature!

Restaurants and bars are plentiful in Brussels. Dine out on fine cuisine or burgers and chips, with everything in between on offer too. Take time to taste silky Belgian chocolate and delicious Belgian waffles before you leave as well.
