A visit to the Flemish Parliament begins in the interactive Visitors’ Centre. There, films and an audio tour help you discover the history of the parliament and the way it operates.
You can also, of course, explore the parliament building itself. The highlight is the Dome Room: a magnificent backdrop of glass where political differences are contested in words. The 124 members of parliament gather together here on Wednesday afternoons for the plenary meeting. You can follow everything word by word from the public gallery. On other days, you can even try out the seat of an elected representative.
A guide will take you past numerous modern art works. The parliament has built up an impressive collection: Panamarenko, Jan Fabre, Rinus Van de Velde, Berlinde De Bruyckere, etc. These are just a few of the many Flemish artists you can discover in the parliament.
Feeling peckish or thirsty? After your visit, you can catch your breath in the café.
For groups, we would be pleased to put together a made-to-measure visit. Visit our website or simply drop in!
