English › Visit the Danish Parliament › The Interiors
Broadly speaking, Christiansborg Palace is divided into two halves. The southern half is used by the Danish Parliament, and the northern half is reserved for the Royal Family, the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister's Office. Each part of the Palace has its own entrance, and it is not normally possible to go from one part of the building to the other inside the Palace.
Christiansborg Palace is a five-storey building with a basement. The main floor is the first storey or the "bel étage", which is French for ”beautiful storey". It houses the most important rooms, such as the Chamber of the Danish Parliament and the Royal Reception Rooms. But the Palace as a whole is richly decorated with works of art offering an inspiring accompaniment to the daily work of Members of Parliament and employees.
