Tårnet’s entrance closes to the public at 09.30 PM. We are not able to let guest in after 09.30 PM under any circumstances. The restaurant closes at 11.00 PM due to safety regulations. If the entire restaurant is booked for a private event, opening hours can under certain circumstances be extended to 12.30 AM.
Your party is more than welcome to visit the viewing point for a magnificent view over Copenhagen. The viewing point closes at 09.00 PM. Smoking or drinking is not allowed.
Live music can be a wonderful addition to a dinner party but for safety reason the Parliament only allows soloists on smaller acoustic instruments. Music, speeches and songs are only allowed if the entire restaurant is booked due to consideration for other diners.

- Practical Info
Christiansborg Palace and its tower are located on the islet of Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen. The entrance to the tower is at the King’s Gate, a large gate in the centre of the palace (immediately beneath the tower). See this picture. The King’s Gate can be reached from the Palace Square and from the Inner Courtyard (via the Marble Bridge and the Riding Ground). There is a lift from the entrance to the top of the tower. The stairs cannot be used.
PLEASE NOTE! From the end of July 2017 to April 2018, due to construction work, there will be no access to the Tower via the Palace Square. Access to the tower must be through the Inner Courtyard. See the map with other entries here
It is easy to get to the tower by public transport. You can plan your journey at www.rejseplanen.dk. Enter ‘Christiansborg’ as your destination. The following buses stop near Christiansborg: 1A, 2A, 26, 40, 66 and 350S. The closest metro stations are Kongens Nytorv and Christianshavn, both at a distance of about one kilometre. The closest railway stations are Copenhagen H and Nørreport.
There are very few parking spaces close to the tower and Christiansborg. They can be found at Slotsholmsgade and along Frederiksholm Canal, among other places. Parking in the area is subject to payment. Read more about parking in Copenhagen Municipality at kk.dk.

Access and waiting time
There will be signs at the entrance to the King’s Gate indicating two queues: one to the restaurant and one to the tower and the viewing platform. The queue to the restaurant is for those who have booked a table in advance and those who hope there will be vacant tables. If the queue is long, staff will as far as possible prioritise those visitors who have booked a table for a certain time. Visitors are recommended to arrive well in advance of the time they have booked a table for.
You often have to queue to visit the View. The best times to see the View are from 11.00 a.m. to 12.00 a.m. and from 4.00 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
There is a scanner at the entrance for the sake of security. As a rule, a security check – similar to the way people are scanned at airports – takes only a few minutes.
The restaurant in the tower is run by Bojesen A/S and, as it is very popular, visitors are encouraged to book a table in advance. Read more about the restaurant, see the menu and book a table at taarnet.dk/restaurant.
Smoking is not permitted in the restaurant or on the viewing platform. Restaurant guests who wish to smoke must take the lift down to the entrance, but they may have to wait to enter the tower again.
