Brussels Sightseeing Tour Including the European Parliament

European Parliament Brussels

Greet your guide at a central Brussels location or depart from your hotel and embark on your sightseeing tour. Begin amid the medieval majesty of Grand Place, a sophisticated square famed for its Baroque and Gothic buildings and rich historical heritage. Admire the grandeur of the Town Hall and then climb aboard a luxurious coach to get an alternative perspective of Brussels’ major sights. 

Cruise past the Congress Column, St Michael’s Cathedral and the world-famous Atomium as you listen to informative commentary. See, too, the Chinese Pavilion and Japanese Tower before returning to the city center to explore the throngs of antique shops in the Sablon district. 

Continue to the majestic Palace of Justice and absorb the regal resplendence of the Royal Square and the Royal Palace.

Arrive in the European Quarter and relish the magnificence of buildings that comprise the heart of the European Union; listen as your guide explains the global significance of the complex and then visit the European Parliament Visitor Center to embark on a self-guided tour that concludes at the Parlamentarium. 

After enriching your knowledge of the EU through interactive displays, experience a simulation of an EP session with a 360-degree digital screen. Return to the central departure point with your guide and continue to explore the city of Brussels independently if you desire.

Unfair to rate this as we were too sick to attend

Great tour! We covered all the hot spots. The Parliamentarian, which is the area of the European Union open to the public for education purposes was amazing. I took some people there the next day! This is a great tour to get a sense of where everything is, and then return to your favorite spots if you need more time. As well, we went to the Atomium, which is a bit of a drive, so I don't believe, I would have made it to this important landmark if I had not gone on the tour.

We do a lot of short city breaks in various European cities and always book tours but i think the Brussels tour was the most enjoyable and interesting tour we have been on. Really really enjoyed it, thank you very much. The female guide was outstanding.

Very handy to do if its your first time in brussels as it enables you to get your bearings plus some history of brussels.
As a bonus you also see a very interesting exhibition at the european parliament.

This is the perfect introduction to Brussels. Our tour guide, Stefan, was knowledgable, entertaining and funny. Despite the fact he had to translate into three languages we never felt he favoured any one language. The tour is part walking and part via coach with the opportunity to visit the Parlimentarium (although there is limited time here). We felt this tour introduced us to parts of Brussels which we may have missed if we hadn't done the tour. I would highly recommend this tour, especially for those who are visitng Brussels for the first time.
