Fodor's Review

Designed by Paris architect Henri Bernard in 1977, this continental landmark is headquarters to the Council of Europe, founded in 1949 and independent of the European Union. A guided tour introduces you to the intricacies of its workings and may allow you to eavesdrop on a session. Arrange your tour by telephone in advance (a minimum of 15 people must sign up before one will be conducted); appointments are fixed according to language demands and usually take place in the afternoon. Note: You must provide ID before entering.
