Vlaams Parlement

Get a view of a political monument
The Flemish Parliament building has a rich history. This dates back to 1905, the year in which De Post and the Maritime Board had the building constructed. It continued to serve as the main building for De Post until 1987. After that, the Flemish Council bought the building and converted it to its present form. Since 16 March 1996, the Flemish Parliament has sat here. On that very day, the parliament met for the first time under the famous glass dome in its own hemisphere. Feel the rich past as you walk through the corridors!

Explore the art collection
Throughout the Flemish Parliament, you can enjoy the contemporary art collection. These includes works of art by such artisans as Panamarenko, Rinus Van de Velde or Luc Tuymans. Moreover, the art collection is seeing constant additions. Because newly emerging artists also deserve a place on the walls of the Flemish Parliament.
