How to attend the Danish Parliament session in Copenhagen
Danish Parliament (Folketing) consists of 179 members that are selected by voting every four years. Its main tasks are passing laws, adopting the state's budgets, controlling the government and taking part in international activities.

You can communicate with the Parliament members during some cultural events and open briefings which take place in Christiansborg Palace. What is more, you can watch them working during the plenary sessions.

2. At the guest entrance, on the side of Rigsdagsgården Street, pull a doorbell - ask the servant how many seats there are left in the visitors' gallery. At the entrance to the parliament you'll be security checked - come here in advance (15 minutes before the session). In the hall there is a cloak room - to use it insert a 20-krone coin.

3. The duration of the session depends on the Parliament's agenda (about one hour). Ask the guide about the rules of behaviour and taking pictures during the session.
