CENTRE EUROPEEN - Centre d'information touristique, Centre d'information Europe Direct
Designed in 2005 by the locally-based architects' office Hermann&Valentiny, the European Centre Schengen houses a café, a Tourist Information Office, a branch of the Europe Direct Network (a series of information centres on EU policies) and the European Museum Schengen. The association "Schengen asbl" that is composed of three communes and their tourist associations, conducts the European Centre.
The Tourist Information Office is open all year round and provides visitors with extensive information on our offer of sightseeing tours in the region. It also organises group visits on request.
The Europe Direct Contact Centre acts as a local intermediary between the EU and its citizens. Covering the entire territory of the EU, the Europe Direct network aims to provide information and advice on questions pertaining to the EU and its policies, while actively promoting the local and regional debate on EU-related issues.
Information leaflets and documentation are available free of charge.
Located within the European Centre, the European Museum Schengen was inaugurated on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Schengen Agreement. This interactive museum retraces the development of Europe in nine chapters, while providing background information on the famous treaty.
The entrance to the museum is free. Groups are advised to call for appointments prior to visiting.
Guided tours on demand.
The café "An der Aaler Schwemm" is open every day from 11 am to 11 pm and it offers coffee, cake and snacks. ( 352 26 66 57 39)
