Located close to the Binnenhof, Europe House is the European Commission Representation and the European Parliament Information Office in the Netherlands. It is the place where you will find the answers to all your questions about Europe.
The European Commission has a representation in every EU country, including the Netherlands. Our main tasks are to collaborate with the Dutch national and local authorities and to inform the general public about the workings and policies of the European Union. We report back to the European Commission’s HQ in Brussels on the main political, economic and social developments in the Netherlands.
The European Parliament Information Office in the Netherlands represents the European Parliament and its Members. We perform this role nationwide with a wide range of activities, such as organizing conventions and debates and informing the media. Our office is further charged with keeping the European Parliament in Brussels abreast of the latest political and general developments in the Netherlands.
Welcome to Europe House, home of the Representation of the European Commission and the Information Office of the European Parliament in the Netherlands. Since the International Open Day in The Hague takes place two days before ´The European Day of Languages´ we will focus on languages and how they have shaped the history of Europe. During your visit we offer you interactive presentations and information on languages in Europe and the linguistic diversity of our continent with
- over 200 European languages,
- 24 official EU languages,
- about 60 regional/minority languages,
- and many more spoken by people from other parts of the world.
We will also tell you about the work we do and about the European Union in general. Europe House does not offer tours, but you can sign up for the presentations.
