Based in the beautiful city of Strasbourg, France, right next to the European Parliament, the Council of Europe headquarters forms the hub of our operations. In the heart of the European Quarter of Strasbourg, the headquarters is in fact a complex of 6 main buildings, with over 2000 staff.

Onsite, there are plenty of facilities to help provide staff with an excellent working environment. You can find 5 restaurants, 3 cafés, a newsagent, a bank, a post office, and a squash court. Right next to le Palais is the beautiful Orangerie park, an ideal place to take a walk, or have a picnic.

As well as impressive architecture, the Council of Europe headquarters is also home to some prestigious art works, donated by member states.
