The Centre Européen Schengen a.s.b.l. is a non-profit organization that manages the European Museum, a Europe Direct Information Centre, and a tourist information office.
We have many years of experience in offering guided tours and educational activities. Our official guides will be delighted to explain the monuments and provide important background knowledge about the Schengen agreements, as well as insider anecdotes. Tours must be booked in advance.
The tourist information office on the pontoon (a building that floats on the Moselle river across from the European Centre) is open all year round and provides visitors with extensive information on the three border region.
The Europe Direct Information 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.
The European Museum Schengen was inaugurated on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Schengen Agreement. It retraces the development of Europe, while providing background information on the famous treaty.
In 2018 the village of Schengen received the European Heritage Label. The label is awarded to those sites of Europe’s shared values, history and cultural heritage, and contributors to national and regional diversity.
