All visitors to the Danish Parliament will be requested to go through a security check at the Visitors' Entrance, which is located beneath the main staircase in Rigsdagsgården. Wheelchair users can also use the Visitors' Entrance.
For security reasons, searches similar to those used in airports will be conducted on entry. As a rule, security checks should only take a few minutes, but waiting time may occur during peak periods. Visitors are therefore requested to arrive 15 minutes before their appointed time.
Security check procedure
When you arrive at the Visitors' Entrance, please ring the bell at the entrance door. When you have been admitted to the building, an employee will ask you to empty the contents of your pockets into a tray together with your bags, coat and jewellery. Your belongings will then be scanned, and you must go through a body-scanner.
After the scan, bags, coats and other items may be placed in a locked wardrobe. If you want to store your belongings in a locker, you will need a 20 kroner coin that will be returned to you when you collect your items. There is a change machine near the Visitors' Entrance, where prams and pushchairs can also be left.
Guided tours begin at the Visitors' Entrance. There are special rules regarding photography in the Danish Parliament, so please check with your guide prior to taking photographs.
All visitors to the Danish Parliament must wear a visible admission badge during the entire visit. Badges will be handed out by an employee at the Visitors' Entrance.
Prams and pushchairs
You are welcome to bring along your pram or pushchair when visiting Parliament. And you may also choose to leave your pram and pushchair at the Visitors’ Entrance.
However, please note that the sights available to visitors are perhaps less suited to very young children under the age of 12.
