Legendary Folketinget Danish Parliament in Copenhagen

img_4787

Marked by a series of medieval era clerestory windows, Folketinget, the Danish parliament is a building to look out for, on your next Copenhagen trip. Representing the unicameral national parliament and the legislative power of the Kingdom of Denmark, this 18th-century Folketinget placidly stretches out on the islet of Slotsholmen. At first glimpse, an ‘unwieldy’ enormousness in a pinkish-brown palette allured us to admire its dynamic structure. Followed by, the historic signature style architecture, to symbolize Denmark’s Monarchy at its best.

Folketinget is situated very close to Borgen and the Christiansborg Palace, and all throughout we noticed similar architectural styles characterized by notable features. We were here for a quick photo stop, however, if you have time on hand, we highly suggest, you explore the interiors by opting for a guided tour. Which, will essentially take you through Folketing’s regal reception rooms, staterooms, apartments, royal chapel, and tower. 

From a rare paternoster lift to the copper Tårnet crowned with a compass axis, the dramatic history of Folketinget unfolds on many levels. Besides, the Tårnet is also the tallest edifice, of Copenhagen and they say you get the best city views from its rooftop terrace. You can take a tour up the tower for no fee, and even treat yourself for a culinary delight at the Restaurant Tårnet. To get to the tower, take the lift from the entrance at the King’s Gate. Note that there are two separate queues for the restaurant and the tower’s viewing platform. The best time to visit Folketinget is from 11.00 to 12.00 in the morning and from 4.00 to 5.30 in the evening.
