Each year, the Danish Parliament opens its doors to visitors on a Friday evening in October during “Copenhagen Night of Culture”, an annual event where cultural institutions and other organisations offer a range of activities at night in an open-house setting.
On this evening, visitors can take a peek behind the facade of Christiansborg Palace, and see where Members of Parliament (MPs) and parliamentary employees carry out their daily work. The political parties organise various events, and visitors will get the chance to meet some of the MPs. In addition, the Danish media's editorial offices at Christiansborg are open to the public. Night of Culture in the Danish Parliament is tremendously popular and attracts about 15,000 visitors every year.
