The Folketinget (or the Danish Parliament) meets in Christiansborg Palace, on the islet of Slotsholmen since 1849. The the Royal Reception Rooms in the palace, the Royal Chapel and the Tower is much more worth a visit though.

The parliament buildings, or Christianborg Slot, stand close to the Holmens Kanal and are a quite impressive sight. Built in 1907 in a neo-baroque style, they house the parliament, the state apartments and the High Court. The tower, at 106 metres, is the tallest in...More

Guided tours in English are available but you have to be quick off the mark to get one of the free tickets which were available from 10.00. It was well worth the effort as we were shown round by an amusing tour guide who not...More

Guided tours happen most days in English in the summer at 13.00 (despite what it says on the website). The tour is free and potentially good as you get to see many sights from the tv series Borgen. Our guide, however, didn't really seem to...More

While there were no guided tours available while we visited Christiansborg palace (where the Danish parliament resides), it was a lovely walk within the palace's courtyard and gardens.

city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
