This stretch is a true melting pot of history with the old fortress history combined with more recent European history.

Next up is the “Hemicycle” and the Convention Center, where you will run to the European Court of Justice and the General Secretariat of the European Parliament. The member flags of the European Union decorates the big squares and you can truly feel that you are in the very heart of Europe.
