Danish Parliament offers free tours of political parties’ rooms

The theme of the tours is “A look behind the façade: art and identity in the parties’ group rooms”

When politicians make public appearances, they show the world a small part of who they really are. Now, the Danish Parliament is giving citizens the opportunity to get a better understanding of their leaders with the launch of a new guided tour, “A look behind the façade: art and identity in the parties’ group rooms”.

What will the art and décor reveal about the politicians?

During this 90-minute tour, experienced guides will give visitors access to areas that are otherwise inaccessible to the public. Moreover, it will allow them to explore the art and décor chosen by politicians in the parliament. In a press release, the Danish Parliament explains that the tour will answer numerous questions that reveal the personalities and identities of the leaders.

More specifically, visitors will understand which parties prefer paintings of nature and which have chosen abstract works of art. Taking this further, the tour will reveal which parties have a keyboard in their group room and which politician plays the musical instrument. In this way, visitors will inevitably grasp a better understanding of the Danish leaders.

The tour will also give guests insight into how meetings take place and what happens behind closed doors. What is more, there will be various short and entertaining quizzes that will be designed to test (and enhance) the knowledge of visitors.

Tickets must be booked in advance

In addition to this, there are several other guided tours on offer this summer. That is, the Danish Parliament also offers a 45-minute tour of the establishment’s historic halls and corridors as well as a 90-minute art tour.

Although all tours are free of charge, one must register their interest and book their tickets via the Parliament's website in advance. Finally, it must be noted that there is a maximum of 10 people per tour group and all guests are required to have a valid corona passport before attending.
