The European Landmarks
The Lieu d’Europe is a place of education for European citizenship and is open to all. Its task is to inform citizens about Europe from an educational, historical and cultural perspective. It highlights Europe’s distinctive features from the Strasbourg viewpoint and emphasises its core values of democracy and human rights. With a permanent exhibition, a resource centre run by the Centre for Information on European Institutions and a room for meetings and discussions, it is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10am to 6pm.See on the map Visit the website
The building that houses the Lieu d’Europe is one of a number of country houses (known as güeter) much sought-after by the Strasbourg nobility and well-to-do bourgeoisie in the 18th century.
