The European hornet can be located under the eaves of houses, decaying logs, attics, inside of hollow walls, underground, and possibly in an unproteched area. If the nest is in an unprotected area, the nest can be identified by a brown fiberous encasement. European hornets can be usually found in orchards where they feed of insects.

Look for hornets for starters. One does not need to travel to Europe to find the European Hornet. The morphology of the target insect can easily be apprehended by visiting a biology website.
