On May 11, the Embassy of France opened its doors to the visiting public as part of the EU Open House, an annual event in which all embassies of the Member States of the European Union (EU) welcome visitors curious to know more about the EU, European diplomacy, and their activities in Washington.

The Embassy of France co-hosted the event with the Embassy of Germany at La Maison Française, the Washington-based cultural center of the Embassy of France. Offerings included interactive photo booths, face-painting and games for children, French and German food and drink, music, and a wide selection of handouts. A special "diplomatic lunch" with traditional French cuisine was also available.

The event marks the second time France and Germany have conducted their EU Open House events jointly. For more information, see the Maison Française website and the event’s general site,
