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.
