Dear friends of the Place of Europe,
After a thwarted spring, summer is finally here! And it brings with it beautiful events which, if they will take place in the respect of the barrier gestures, will be no less festive and convivial and will take place for the most part in the open air. Exhibitions, concerts, children’s shows, activities to be carried out independently: here are some of our proposals to live a European summer, with family or friends… at the Lieu d’Europe.
We hope to see many of you there!
Find every Saturday the Strasbuskers’ concert!
To convince you to join us, here are some excerpts from their rehearsal at the Lieu d’Europe.
Free concert in the Lieu d’Europe park at 5pm!

Discover the European institutions
Did you know that the premises of the European Parliament were named after eminent European personalities?
While the Louise Weiss building is the main entrance to the institution, few people know that its neighbour, connected by the footbridge over the Ill, is called Salvador de Madariaga. A pacifist of the shadows, the Spaniard joined the League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations, in 1921, where he headed the “Disarmament” section. Exiled abroad during the Franco dictatorship, he campaigned for the European cause from the 1930s onwards before chairing the Cultural Commission of the Congress of The Hague, which led to the creation of the Council of Europe.
Built in the 1980s, the building that bears his name now houses the European Parliament and the European Ombudsman.
