European Parliament, Brussels
The European Parliament is the directly elected parliamentary institution of the European Union. Together with the Council of the European Union (the Council) and the European Commission, it exercises the legislative function of the EU and it has been described as one of the most powerful legislatures in the world. Visits to your MEP need to be booked directly by the group leader.

Informative visits of the parliament are organised for groups that last around an hour that include a general introduction by an EP official to the role and work of the European Parliament. On occasion, this could be followed by a discussion with an MEP if parliamentary business allows.
When the European Parliament is in session, groups may be able to observe MEPs' debates 'live' from the visitors' gallery.
