Europe Day 2017

EU institutions open their doors

The European Union institutions are not only opening up their data, they will also open their doors to the public to celebrate Europe Day. The EU institutions open their doors to the public on 6 May in Brussels, 13 & 14 May in Luxembourg and 14 May in Strasbourg.

It is a unique opportunity for citizens to discover how the European institutions work, what their main priorities are and what concrete actions they undertake. Throughout the day, visitors can participate in debates, gather information and enjoy guided tours through the buildings of the European institutions. Furthermore, a variety of activities and events for all ages to celebrate Europe Day will also take place at local EU offices around the globe.

Each year thousands of people take part in visits, debates, concerts and other events to mark the day and raise awareness about the EU. The highlights of this year's event will be the opening of the House of European History and the brand new Europa building, main seat of the European Council and the Council of the European Union.
