The EU institutions in Brussels and many of the EU's 140 Delegations and offices around the world open their doors each year to mark Schuman Day on 9 May, the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950, when the French foreign minister Robert Schuman proposed a joint authority to oversee French and German production of coal and steel.

To celebrate Europe Day, the European institutions in Brussels will open their doors to the public for the annual Open Day on 5 May from 10.00 to 18.00. The Open Day is a unique opportunity for everyone from the young to the not-so-young to discover how the European institutions work, what their priorities are and how they affect the lives of Europeans. Throughout the day, visitors can step inside the institutions’ buildings to take part in special activities such as public debates and enjoy guided tours of the buildings, all in a festive atmosphere.
