The European Youth Centre Strasbourg (EYCS) is an international training, education and conference centre which hosts participants attending activities organised by the Council of Europe's youth sector or any other entity of the organisation.

External event organisers can also request to hold meetings, seminars or training courses in the Centre’s facilities, which include onsite accommodation and catering services.

These facilities can be used for the activities of any external organisation, association, institution, structure or youth network which respects and defends the Council of Europe’s values.

How to get to the European Youth Centre

CTS is Strasbourg’s public transport company. Maps and a trip planner for getting around Strasbourg can be found on its website:

For the EYCS, get off at the stop called Parlement Européen.

Tickets can be bought from the ticket machines at tram stops, on the internet or via the CTS mobile application. Once tickets have been validated, they can be used on any kind of public transport for the next hour.

Be warned: it will be more expensive to buy your bus ticket on board a bus rather than before your journey.

 From Strasbourg railway station: 16 minutes

A new route has opened: Bus H provides a rapid transit connection between Strasbourg railway station and the European Parliament. It only serves 10 stops and runs every 10 minutes during the day.

From Strasbourg Airport, Entzheim: 55 minutes

Take the TER Alsace rail shuttle (TER means Regional Express Train) from the station right next to the airport.

The Tram+TER ticket allows you to travel to and from the airport and the CUS (Strasbourg Urban Community). This combined Tram-Bus-Train ticket can be used for 1.5 hours after validation.

 By taxi: 15 minutes from city centre

In town, you can get a taxi at the Railway Station or near the Homme de Fer tram stop. A taxi from Strasbourg city centre to the EYCS will cost 15-25 euros.
